Tanel Veenre

I created these fantasy creatures with big eyes and open mouths from lamb spine bones I found from my travels to Estonian islands. Pieces of China are tongues in open mouths. It depends on the viewer if this creature is laughing, screaming or surprised.


我用我在爱沙尼亚群岛旅行时发现的羊脊骨创造了这些大眼睛、张嘴的幻想生物。中国的碎片是张开嘴的舌头。这个生物是在笑、尖叫还是惊讶,取决于观者。
