José Manuel Castro López manipulates stone like it was soft clay. His sculptures are full of twists and turns, waves and wrinkles which contrast with the tough material and make you question the laws of physics.

The Spanish artist draws inspiration from Galician mythology: "My relationship with the stone is not physical, but magical," he told The Creators Project. "It recognizes me, it obeys me…we understand each other. My stones are not lifeless. They manifest themselves". To create these smooth textures López uses mostly quartz and granite.

Looks like a coral, especially with the pink-ish color.
