Artist Creates Beautiful, Intricate Ceramic Skull Sculptures Inspired By Myths

Japanese artist Katsuyo Aoki has created a series of beautiful and intricate ceramic skull sculptures entitled ‘Predictive Dream’.

The decorative styles and forms that he incorporates into his artworks are based on historical backgrounds and ideas, myths, and allegories.

He said, “Their existence in the present age makes us feel many things; adoration, some sort of romantic emotions, a sense of unfruitfulness and languor from their excessiveness and vulgarity. And on the other hand, they make us feel [tranquil] and awe that can almost be described as religious, as well as an image as an object of worship.”
