Cardboard Sculptures That Seem Built To Take Off

These incredible sculptures of flying machines are made entirely of cardboard by artist Daniel Agdag. I'm amazed at the choice of materials for these works since cardboard is something that I think of as fragile and certainly not resistant to the effects of time. All I know is that the artist must be a master of glue and carboard to build some of the fine structural elements. I'm in love with these. They remind me of whimsical flying ships illustrated in the animated films of Hayao Myazaki.
