Darth Vader Mask Made of Bugs Is Terrifying and Gorgeous #SciFiSunday
Klaus Enrique has managed to make Darth Vader even more terrifying than normal. From Wired:
Spiders might not make you think of Darth Vader, but you’re not Klaus Enrique.
The sculptor and photographer was sketching a tarantula when he realized the arachnid resembled the mouth and nose sections of the Sith lord’s iconic mask. Inspiration struck. Enrique spent four months painstakingly arranging dead butterflies, moths, scorpions, and millipedes along with a fly and a cicada on a plasticine bust. He photographed the finished product, bringing the worst villain from long ago and far away to life in all its creepy, crawly glory.
