Brazilian artist Tunga, nee Antonio José de Barros Carvalho e Mello Mourao, has been creating sculptures and installations since the 1970s. Currently he has an exhibit called Presolaires at Galerie Daniel Templon in Paris. As part of the exhibit he has produced a series of marionettes made of iron, bottle glass, and crystal – materials often found in Tunga’s work – as well as pearls, sponge and amber. The puppets are offset by a collection of iron containers housing pieces of resin, silicon and steel.
You can see more of Tunga’s work at the gallery’s site.
