Extraordinary sculptures by Saúl Hernández (from Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico). The “208 OSEOsidades” is a collection of 21 bronze sculptures of 21 centimeters in height. He uses the most common representation of death which is the human skeleton in a 1:8 scale replica of a real skeleton.
His sculptures represent the character in different every day attitudes, playing golf or soccer, thinking, playing guitar or making love. There is a character familiar to us in these astonishing sculptures. The absence of skin makes it relate to anyone, ignores whether if the person is fat or thin, white or black.
These sculptures are mounted on a base of marble, onyx and stainless steel. All the pieces are made in bronze with a wax of silver, a treatment of jewelry. The sculptures were personally executed by the sculptor in his studio Saúl Hernández H & M Foundry, located in the city of Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico.
