Groundbreaking Stone Sculptures by Hirotoshi Itoh



Hirotoshi Itoh graduated from Tokyo National Fine Arts University in 1982 and later went into his family business as a stonemason. He spent several years working with metal before turning his attention to stones. Utilizing stones found in a river bank near his home, Itoh creates sculptures that juxtapose the original shape and hardness of the material with surprising humor and texture. Some of the sculptures you will see below will have you saying, “How the hell is that even possible?” We can assure Adobe Photoshop was not involved. Enjoy!
