Eye Candy: Porcelain Fighting Figures Dropped And Photographed The Moment Of Shattering

shattering.jpg

This is a series of photographs by German artist Martin Klimas of a bunch of porcelain fighting figures the moment of impact after being dropped (the sound of the crash sets off the camera). It makes it look like the little figures are really kicking each other's asses. But they're not, they're just breaking on the floor. Or ARE they? I think I heard one scream. "That was your stomach growling." My stomach, or my pet lion? "You don't have a pet lion." King Goldenmane begs to differ -- he will eat you. "You really don't live in reality, do you?" As little as possible.

Hit the jump for more, including a bonus dragon at the end, but check out Martin's website for the rest, as well as his other art.

Thanks to Dominic, who breaks things all the time but never takes pictures.

     The dragon looks weird breaking without a fighter kicking its ass

     These are pretty neat, it is like taking a photograph of porcelain statues fighting each other.

  • Photoshop

  • That's pretty cool.

  • lothvamp

     The unbroken guy in the middle wins

  • The ingenuity of photographers never fails to amaze me.

  • raditzzzz

    couldn't bother to remove the "made in china" sticker from the bottom, eh?

  • Langdon Herrick

     That's probably part of the point.

  • SHOUTING

     In what way could it be part of the point.
