The Zygomatic Frying Pan

Subodh Gupta Skull

We’ve seen skulls made out of Legos, diamonds, and even fur—now we’ve got cookware.

This giant skull, constructed entirely out of everyday pots and pans is the creative vision of Subodh Gupta.  Gupta is well known for working with stainless steal kitchenware to create symbols that reflect the urban globalization surrounding him in his native land of India.

The skull was recently displayed at London’s annual Frieze Art Fair which,

…takes place every October in Regent’s Park, London. It features around 150 of the most exciting contemporary art galleries in the world. The fair also includes specially commissioned artists’ projects, a prestigious talks programme and an artist-led education schedule.

It’s amazing how he was able to create such form with all of those pots and pans.  Squint at the picture and you can just see how the anatomical structures pop.

Gupta’s skull just might be a tad more interesting than Damien Hirst’s diamond skull….just saying.
