His sculptures are extremely detailed and precise, the artist manages to create art pieces that look not only realistic in shapes, bus also light.

He plays on mass and tactile sensation, on the physical properties of the material he uses, showing it soft or elastic, light or heavy, liquid and solid.

He digs it to show us what it hides, to discover its various organic layers.

Some of his modern art creations include a caged elephant fetus, detailed hand sculptors, and even a portrait of the pope Benedict XVI.

There is also an old women with all of her body wrinkles and a human baby fetus.
