Matchstickmen, Giant Matchsticks With Creepy Human Heads

Matchstickmen by Wolfgang Stiller

“Matchstickmen” are giant matchsticks with burnt match heads that look disturbingly like blackened human heads. Created by German artist Wolfgang Stiller, the sculptures have been exhibited since 2008 in unsettling installations in which the matchsticks are tucked in coffin-like matchboxes, and otherwise scattered around the installation space.
