Remarkable, Intricate Sculptures Made from Candle Wax

One of the best things about the internet is the fact that it provides a constant showcase for the most weird and wonderful corners of human creativity. Like, for example, these remarkable works by Indonesian artist Ferdi Rizkiyanto, which have been doing the rounds on Tumblr this morning. They’re intricate, evocative sculpture made out of… candle wax. As in, the actual wax running off a lit candle. To be honest, I have no idea how you’d even begin to make something like this, but it’s many kinds of awesome. Click through to check out more pictures.
