This Is Not A Photoshop Collage, It's A Wood Carving

This morning, Ron van der Ende left me speechless with these tapes. They are not pasted in Photoshop. They are not giant three-dimensional tapes. They are bas-relief mosaics made with old wood cuts. His other gadgets are even more impressive.

According to Ron van der Ende:

I collect old doors and stuff. Old painted wood that I find in the street. I take it apart and skin it to obtain a 3mm thick veneer with the old paint layers still intact. I construct bas-reliefs that I cover with these veneers much like a constructed mosaic. I do not paint them!

I want some of these so badly. [Ron van der Ende via Diskursdisko via Neatorama]
