Tiny Detailed Play-Doh Sculptures Of Popes, Carved In Fish Tin Cans
Berlin, Germany-based artist Miriam Jonas sculpts detailed portraits of popes out of Play-Doh in fish tin cans.
In her project ‘Polka Popes’, she uses fish cans as she plays on the traditional Christian symbol of the ‘fish’ (or ‘Ichthys’ in Greek, an acronym that translate to “Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Saviour” in English)—and borrows the typical Spanish folklore ‘polka dots’ pattern and places the tin cans with colorful Play-Doh juxtaposed against a white wall.
