Austrian artist Markus Leitsch has created a series of hide and fur sculptures intended to explore human bodies. Officially named 'coat' and 'suit,' the sculptures are created using animal hides and furs.

The 'coat' work depicts a mold of the artist's body lying on the ground. Actually, it is made from cow hide soaked in resin. For 'suit,' Leitsch applied a different technique in which he molded cow hides around his body to create a fur human.

Check out the images, from DesignBoom, of Markus Leitsch's awsome fur sculptures and artworks.
