Shadow Dancing (Michael Jackson) by Diet Wiegman

I launched Illusion website about four years ago, and one of the first artists I had featured was Diet Wiegman. His sculptures look like glued, unorganized junk, but the beauty lies when light hits these creations projecting shadow of objects or people on walls. Some of his well-known pieces include Michael Jackson, Venus de Milo, and Michelangelo’s David.
