Mysterious paper sculptures have been left, anonymously, in libraries and museums all over Edinburgh, Scotland beginning last March. The first amazing piece, a little tree mounted on a book, was found at the Scottish Poetry Library.
The Second one suddenly showed up at The National Library of Scotland, this time a coffin, topped by a large gramophone. This one again was left with no artist signature but only with a tag that said “This is for you in support of libraries, books, works, ideas…”
The Phantom Sculptor deposited at several places around the city a total of 10 of these gorgeous, intricate pieces made of books and paper. The latest ones, a dinosaur, birds, feathers, and a pair of gloves were discovered in mid-November.
These fascinating little sculptures made my day. A little magic and wonder to remind you the joy that art can bring to your life.
