Exposed Superhero Sculptures (11 pics)

In this series titled Heroes: The Route of Exposure, sculptor Adrian Tranquilli shows us the rarely seen, vulnerable side of our favorite superheroes. Tranquilli wanted to focus less on the heroes' superpowers and psychic abilities, and more on their human fragility. As a result, Batman is positioned on his knees looking for answers while Superman is coming out of the wall injured and bloody.

Tranquilli was born in Melbourne in 1966, and currently lives in Rome.
