Are these animal portraits or human contortionists? At first glance, you’ll admire the wonders of nature on a canvas. But when you’ll look closer you can actually see human arms, feet and legs bending into extraordinary poses to execute beautiful animal figures. Created by talented British artist Emma Fay, the gorgeous sculptural body art is a result of human contortionists’ flexibility of acrobats, fantasy of the artist using water-based paints, brush and sponge, and finally the brilliant photography skills of Jonathan Macauley.

Artist Fay, along with human models, has not only formed animal sculptures, but also transformed human canvases into stunning insects and temples as well. The Marvels of Nature series by the artist has turned human figures into various creatures such as tarantula, zebra, mandrill, seahorse, giraffe, dragonfly, crab and also into the shapes of mosque, tea pot, cupcake, etc.

Such unusual work of art has forced us to think that humans do have some sort of connection with their surrounding environment. May be that’s the reason human canvases can beautifully form figurative representation of the relationship we share with natural life on earth.

According to Emma Fay, these are not just body paintings, but pieces of art depicting evolution and the remarkable ways animals have evolved to survive surroundings. We absolutely agree with her, as the body transformations into animals and other creatures are beyond intriguing- the art speaks for itself without even uttering a word. It shows us that we are lucky to live with lovely people, surrounded by temples and wonderful animals and insects. Plus, it somehow reminds us that we don’t even notice the enchanting charm around us, and keep wasting precious moments in looking for things that are not with us.

Now we’ll let the commendable artwork talk for itself.
