All these works of plaster on metal, shows a more decadent vision of men. Adding some accessories like a fishnet on all sculptures makes it more “human”. Some of the sculptures are very surprising, others look more like a study on body’s anatomy.  In both cases, all sculptures are well placed, taking the best each visitor will be ready to give afterwards,
