Paper Cathedrals

Rather than make this about anything other than the pictures at hand, and without segueing off into any of the following; jellyfish, squid, Goldman Sachs, monolithic societal structures, The Church (my initial chain of thought when seeing these structures and writing this post before I got real and made myself a cup of tea and gave myself a manicure), I’ll cut to the chase. I think these suspended paper sculptures by Dutch artist Peter Gentenaar  are wonderful, and should it turn out that heaven is not a halfpipe, and rather the Saint-Riquier church (near Abbeville in the Somme Region in France, dummy), complete with these freeform paper cathedrals, I’ll make like O.P.M., and die before I wake.
