Moss People – Deceptively innocent sculptures inspired by the Nordic fairy tales

2015-10-13 // art

The Moss People series of Finnish artist Kim Simonsson, based in Helsinki, inspired by the universe of Nordic fairy tales to create poetic sculptures, paying tribute to the characters from the legends of his country and people of the forest. Some falsely innocent sculptures, inspired by Moss People, these young and playful elf girls, fairies or trolls, accused of stealing children and babies, replacing them by a changeling, a decoy left instead of a human newborn . The creations of Kim Simonsson are currently on display at Jason Jacques Gallery in New York.
