Airy Summer Dresses Made Of Marble

Sculptures that look like they're made out of one medium but are actually made out of something completely different are fun to check out, both through pictures and in person, because your mind has a hard time reconciling the fact that the item you're looking at is not what it appears to be.

Take these summer dress sculptures by Alasdair Thomson for example- they look like lightweight cotton dresses that would feel like nothing at all when worn, but if you were to strap these solid marble sculptures on you'd probably throw out your back!

The texture of the marble only seems to add to the illusion, giving the surface of each piece the look of raw cotton.

Absolutely beautiful. Reminds one of the incredible renaissance and earlier sculpture and their treatment of fabric. Like Michelangelo's "Piéta" and other work. Absolutely mind-boggling.
