Woodblock Printed Skeletons

Vinicius Libardoni is a Brazilian architect and illustrator. These are from his new woodblock printing series. I love the inconsistencies of woodblock printing. Each print can be slightly different based on the placement of the blocks when printing and how much ink is applied. These prints make me think of wooden coffins and decaying bodies. The face reminds me of death masks and heavily wrinkled skin. You can see more of his work on his website.
