This Slovenian artist has been inspired from a young age to give identity to the spiritual presences residing in nature.
When you’re young and in love with life, it’s easy to see life’s majesty and mysteries in the secluded depths of nature. Away from mankind’s meddling, the crevasse of every leaf, the twisting images of a morning fog, and the songs of twittering birds become realized fantasies of a hopeful soul.
When you get older, however, it can be harder to hear Mother Nature’s melodic tune. That is, unless you choose to remain present and aware of her teachings.
Perhaps that awareness is what has inspired Miha Brinovec, a Slovenian artist, to create beautiful, natural sculptures. Born in 1971, Miha has felt inspired from a young age to give identity to the spiritual presences residing in nature.
As the artist shared with Bored Panda, he does not use any adhesives of manufactured materials when exposing Earth’s beauty.
“As a child, I always wanted to see mythical creatures from fairy tales. Of course I couldn’t see them.
Now I am older but that child inside me is still curious, so one day I came up with the idea how to see them. I went into the forest, picked up a magical place and surrendered myself with the process. I picked up available nature materials, asked the spirit to reveal himself (herself) to me and started to work. This is how some pretty amazing faces were brought to life.”
