Handmade eye sculptures by Milan-based architect Stefano Prina. The works were inspired by the expressive eyes of his dog Luchino and through research and his experience building scale models and mockups, has allowed him to develop a technique that explores all the permutations of color, shape and pigmentation of the iris. The eye sculptures are painted by hand on a wood shell base and encased in acrylic resin and "belong to monsters, reptiles, fish, and animals both real and imaginary."
I believe that the idea at the foundation of all this has to do with the magic and wonder that one feels observing the shape and forms of life through the real and true marvel of evolution that is the eye, the organ that absorbs light and allows our perception of the world. In any case, apart from any explanation, I would like my eyes to be a single, joyous moment of wonder for those who observe them.
