Daft Punk Unmasked in Wooden Sculptures

Parisian artist Xavier Veilhan has created these intricate wooden depictions of dance music legends Daft Punk without their iconic helmets on for his new sculpture series. He revealed to The Creators Project that it was Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo’s idea to be depicted without their masks on.

“The funny thing is I didn’t even ask them. It was a very logical response to my proposal: I proposed to introduce them as producers, not as musicians, and so after talking to them, we decided that they should appear with their civilian names. They proposed to me: ‘Okay, we should make the sculpture the non-existing image of us. So if somebody wants to see how we are like in real [life] they’ll have to look at the sculpture.’”

Of course it’s not the first time you might have seen Daft Punk without their helmets on
