Martin Klimas' Porcelain Fighters

Created by dropping Chinese porcelain figures from a height of 3meters (approx. 10 feet) and a high speed camera to greet them at the bottom, German photographer Martin Klimas captured some truly spectacular explosions of lacquered porcelain, with statues of Shaolin fighters frozen in a state of dismembering combat.

As Martin put it: 'The porcelain statuette bursting into pieces isn't really what captures the attention, the fascination lies in the genesis of a dynamic figure that replaces the static pose.' These 'temporary' statues capture the birth of a dynamic sculpture from figures stuck in an otherwise static pose, which makes the concept behind this set truly unique. Check out more from the photographer after the break!
