The Four Seasons, Giant Head Sculptures Representing the Seasons

The Four Seasons sculptures by Philip Haas

“The Four Seasons” is a sculpture series of four giant heads, each representing a season of the year. Artist Philip Haas crafted the 15 foot tall sculptures out of fiberglass. The sculptures are inspired by the work of Renaissance painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo who created portraits composed of everyday objects like fruits and books (for an example, scroll down). “The Four Seasons” series is on display at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London until September 16, 2012.
