I love these dog sculptures by artist (and friend) Helen Ju.
"Each of my dog sculptures starts with a wire armature
that is wrapped solid in magazine paper and glue,
and as a result, the final piece is *amazingly* sturdy.
After the muscles and form are defined, the piece
is covered with paper from Bark, my favorite
dog magazine. So you will discover dog references
sprinkled here and there. Each piece is gloss
varnished with three layers for UV protection
and moisture resistance."
