Abstract creations by Vladimir Bulatov

Vladimir Bulatov creates very complex and wonderful abstract bronze sculptures. Shapes of sculptures are based on Platonic solids, but they represent another view on these classic polyhedrons. All figures were designed using classical ideas of balance and symmetry. These abstract forms express geometric aesthetic and beauty of shapes.

The photo above shows five interconnected tetrahedrons, so they are look like a single complex closed shape. Other figures by Vladimir Bulatov are based on single Platonic shape, e.g. dodecahedron or icosahedron. or more complex Archimedian solid.

I bet it would be really easy to kill someone with Dodecahedron IX.
