It is not often that we talk about popular culture and classical sculpture in the same sentence. However, artist-extraordinaire Peter Straub makes that unique fusion possible with his ingeniously made 3D renderings of pop culture characters in all glorious gray scale. The dramatic elegance of their design details stand out in this manner – be it the intricate braids of Thorin Oakenshield or the odd Endor costume worn by Luke Skywalker!
And, in case you are still interested in ‘ole throwbacks’ with a pop cultural twist, take a gander at these superheroes in their 16th century get up.
