0 HUMANS Transformed Into Wonderful ANIMAL Portraits Through BODY PAINTING

It's always great to see beautiful body painting, especially when it involves animals. These beautiful works of art are portraits of animals that have been painstakingly drawn onto human bodies. They were all created by Florida-based artist Shannon Holt, who's known for her skilled work in the art of body painting.

The piece is part of Holt’s “Florida Wildlife Series,” a collection of several animal portraits. Each portrait is said to have taken Holt about six to 12 and a half hours to complete, according to Caters News.

“You can have a really beautiful work that transforms the body into a human sculpture or abstract piece that touches on art history, or is a master copy of an Italian Renaissance painting,” she told the Daytona Beach News-Journal in an interview in May.

She added that she loves the “ephemeral” nature of body painting. “It’s here and then it’s gone,” she said. “It’s kind of like ourselves -- we’re here on the Earth and then we’re gone, and it’s beautiful.”
