Medieval beasts are transformed into piñatas!

Roberto Benavidez transforms beasts from Medieval illuminated manuscripts–in particular the Luttrell Psalter–into sweet, sweet piñatas. So many cool critters in this gallery! “’I have always admired and gravitated towards old painting techniques,’ Benavidez says of his piñatas. ‘The oddness of the creatures and people, the odd perspective—they were captivating. As a sculptor, the challenge of taking these odd 2D forms and recreating [them] into 3D is the most fulfilling challenge for me right now.'” (Thanks, Ian!)
