Baroque Wigs by Asya Kozina and Dmitriy Kozin

In the 17th and 18th centuries, upper-class Europeans wore powdered wigs, and aristocratic ladies outdid each other in height and decoration to a ridiculous degree. Russian artists Asya Kozina and Dmitriy Kozin created those wigs, with a modern feel in her art series called Skyscraper on the Head. Her wigs are made of paper, with more modern decorations atop.

Baroque and Rococo wigs used to be adorned with symbols of luxury, sophistication and the romantic spirit of the time. They were frequently bedecked with model frigates and intricate still lives composed of exotic fruits, flowers and even stuffed birds. This historic trend inspired us to link our paper Baroque wigs with the similar symbols of our time.

See a collection of the Kozins' wigs at Flashbak, and the whole series at Behance. -Thanks, Walter!
