These “How is that standing?” bronze sculptures are the creations of French artist, Bruno Catalano and they will make you double-take. In September in celebration of their status as the European Capitol of Culture 2013, the port of Marseille placed 10 of these life-sized sculptures on display outside. Each piece has huge chunks missing from them as if an “eraser” tool from Photoshop was used. The artists describes these pieces as representations of a world citizen in search of their missing pieces. Catalano worked as a sailor where he found much of inspiration from traveling for these sculptures.
