Miha Brinovec, born 1971 in Braslovce, Slovenia, creates beautiful, natural sculptures that give identity to the spiritual presences residing in nature. He does not use any adhesives or manufactured materials in the construction of these magical embodiments, just the natural materials present at the site of the spiritual interaction. The level of detail in his creations and the stunning environments surrounding them make for a powerful, almost interactive experience with the spirits of a nature.

“As a child I always wanted to see mythical creatures from fairy tales. Of course I couldn’t see them.

Now I am older but that child inside me is still curious, so one day I came up with the idea how to see them. I went into the forest, picked up a magical place and surrendered myself with the process. I picked up available nature materials, asked the spirit to reveal himself (herself) to me and started to work. This is how some pretty amazing faces were brought to life.” – Miha Brinovec, Submission to Bored Panda
