What have we become: sculpture from old books.

Artist Nicholas Galanin has created a wonderful collection of sculptures made from books, featuring reliefs of faces and traditional Tlingit forms. The Flickr stream for the collection entitled "What Have We Become" is here. In the artist's statement he discloses that he uses old ethnographic texts about the Tlingit written by non-native ethnographers/anthropologists, etc.
