Giant Burnt Matches Sculptures by Wolfgang Stiller.

Matchstickmen is the creation of Germany based sculptor Wolfgang Stiller.

He attaches full-sized head molds to lengths of square lumber, creating an illusion of a match burnt into a man.

The life-sized, burnt down matchsticks with human heads symbolize how people burn out and get left behind in a society that only focuses on economic growth, wealth and a stellar career.

While Stiller leaves the meaning of the artworks open for interpretation the pieces exist in a surprisingly strange area between morbid and humorous. Wolfgang Stiller was born 1961 in Wiesbaden, and currently his studio is in Berlin.
