The Kid Should See This

Two professors sculpt each other in less than ten minutes

Watch in real time as Professor Cao Chang Xu of Beijing‘s Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) and Professor Sarath Chandrajeewa of Sri Lanka‘s University of Visual and Performing Arts go head to head in a friendly face off: Each works diligently — never holding still to pose — while the other observes and sculpts the wet clay.

In less than ten minutes, each sculptor creates an impressive portrait bust of the other. The demonstration video was uploaded by artist Anuja de silva.

More handmade faces: Artist Li Hongbo’s incredible paper sculptures, Paleoartist John Gurche reconstructs the face of Homo naledi, and Laika’s Head of Puppetry explains how stop motion puppets are made.
