Australian artist Joseph Marr creates sultry sculptures made entirely from crystallized sugar. These sculptures depict men and women in the nude (often tangled up together). These sculptures were created in a variety of different colors, such as orange, red and green.

Marr uses sugar for these tantalizing artworks because it represents the way that sexual relationships can be sweet and satisfying. It also represents the way that people get themselves into sticky situations over lust and desire.

These clear, sugary sculptures are thought-provoking and attention grabbing. Sex sells, but then again so does candy, which makes these sculptures twice as appealing to audiences. These tempting jello-style sculptures are intimate, and are guaranteed to generate some interesting conversation among viewers. Stats for Provocative Sugary Sculptures Trending: Older & Buzzing
