Shadow of Knives is an extraordinary series of knife carvings from Chinese artist Li Hongbo. A graduate of Beijing's Central Academy of Fine Arts , Hongbo first conceived the series back in 2007 and now its being exhibited at Contemporary by Angela Li in Hong Kong.
To create his carvings, Hongbo used traditional Chinese knives. He carved the blades, leaving ''shadows'' of the hollow parts in the knives. The artist says the pieces serve as a warning that “human beings will eventually destroy themselves because of their gluttony and their abuse of animals.”
