They may look solid, but in reality they are paper sculptures, made from thousands of pieces of paper that have been meticulously glued together so they accordion out, yet can be put back into the shape they were sculpted into. Think of Chinese paper dragons and how each piece of paper is glued together in a lattice pattern, and you’re halfway there.

Only, Li Hongbo, the artist behind these sculptures, has taken his artistry about 100 times higher.
