It's called Duramen actually. It means heartwood. Bonsoir Paris (Goodnight Paris) is the design team of Rémy Clémente and Morgan Maccari. They do all kinds of sculpture but what I'm featuring here is their work using wood.
They carve in a way that makes it look like it's melting. If you follow my art posts you know that I love it when an artist creates a work that has a surprise behind it. In this case I love they they have created something that looks fluid from something that is anything but fluid as well as something that gives the illusion of being dynamic and, again, fluid, while being made from something rigid.
