Fine Art Wax Sculptures


Beautiful sculptures made out of what? Wax! Artist Urs Fischer’s installment of wax figures will be at the Arsenale Complex for this year’s Venice Art Biennale. His work includes a melting man standing and gazing upon a statue: Giovanni Bologna’s 16th Century “The Rape of the Sabine Women.” Throughout the duration of the show, the wax figures slowly fall apart…limb by limb.


The 54th Venice Biennale will be on until November 27, 2011. If you're in Italy this summer, make sure to check this exhibition out!
