Sculpture Athletes’ is a photo series featuring men and women with Adonis-like physiques striking their best Greek statue pose, all the while soaked in a glass/porcelain skin type overlay. It pays homage to the classic athlete statues from antiquity, and at the same time, making us mere mortals conscious of our not-so-buff bodies.

California-based photographer and the guy behind these water wigs, Tim Tadder, came up with the concept. He then joined forces with Paris-based digital artist, Cristian Girotto, to help with the skin retouching. Together, they produced a one-of-a-kind series that shows us how the human body is a truly a work of art.

If anybody needs me, I’ll just be in the gym working on my already delayed Olympic body.
