Russian Artist Creates Intricate Baroque Wigs From Paper

There are people all over the world who are sharing their passion for fashion throughout history.  For some, it’s the dresses, for others, the turncoats.  However, this Russian artist, Asya Kozina is unique in the sense that she loves the wigs that frequented the heads of the rich during the Baroque era.  Taking a look at these paper reconstructions, you can see just how much work must have gone into their maintenance and fashion sense, even though it seems quite ridiculous to us, now.  We can see how much work that the models would have had to have gone through in order to make sure that they showed themselves off in an acceptable way.  Can you imagine how heavy they would be if they were made of the actual materials?
