While there are few things cuter than a chubby baby, this bizarre baby sculpture set by Johnson Tsang is a little unsettling. The My Babies solo exhibit by the Hong Kong artist uses living clay to depict the temperamental but playful nature of infants.

The dramatic art also features the sculptor's characteristic fluid qualities. The lifelike baby sculpture pieces have exaggerated facial expressions including pouty lips, large eyes and overly scrunched and squished up faces. While most of the sculptures are simply white with some color accents in the babies' lips or eyes, one or two are done in full flesh coloring. The effect is even creepier and more bizarre.
