The statues I sculpt weigh only a few grams

Philippe Brousseau

Cambodia, France / siem reap
Innovation : Marketed / Broadcasted
After being fired by one of the leading manufacturers of Carnivale masks, this French designer went to live near the temples of Angkor. He then improved upon the traditional technique of paper maché to give life to unbelievable statues whose secret he alone knows. All are locally produced with recycled materials.

Behind the scenes: It was on our way back from a shop to buy souvenirs that we discovered the work of Philippe. Like everyone else, we were totally fooled by the illusion he creates and we loved this sleight-of-hand… which was socially and environmentally responsible.

Interact, support, talk !
