Crazy work made entirely of paper from the Danishman Peter Callesen. I don’t think me or anyone else has ever seen anything quite like this.

Does what it says on the tin really. Somehow I don’t think this would happen in the UK: 1. We’re not creative enough and 2. The sign-holders/chanters/Daily Mail would have a field day . . . Stolen from Viceland. Also, what kind of category does this go in? Answers on a postcard.
