Greek artist Tedosio Sectio Aurea creates iron sculptures that cast extraordinary shadows when lit from just the right angles. A bouquet of flowers becomes a the silhouette of a graceful woman holding a pair of fronds. Like a mass of molecules, a seemingly amorphous set of 350 interconnected balls cast the unmistakable shadow of Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man.

"Auera’s keen understanding of light and shadow delights the viewer on both the wall and in 3D. Many of his iron sculptures are beautiful in their own right, and tell a story through tiny details held within. Once a shadow is cast, however, the viewer gains a deeper understanding of his forms. The rigidity of the iron brings their shadows to life."
