Calvin Ma’s Human-Bird Hybrid Sculptures

Sculptor Calvin Ma has a collection of amazing human-bird hybrid figures, full of ornate and beautiful detail.

Inspired by different species, the sculptures seem to blend childlike figures with winged counterparts, creating feathered, patterned, and fascinating designs.

We love the creativity at work here, and the way the sculptures capture an imaginative youthfulness. Great work, via Colossal:

“I never really felt comfortable in my own skin in social settings, so I created these characters to help tell stories about it,” Ma tells Colossal. “Each piece is meant to act out a specific social anxiety related experience. I try not to get too dark or serious with the work and really try to have fun with it.”
