Oversized silicone women are the theme of Colin Christian's art, which is self described as "futuristic sexy optimistic." The voluptuous creations are a representation of pop culture and sexuality in bare elements (no pun intended).

The silicone women feature large eyes and smooth curves, and are between five and 20 feet tall. The artist's future aspirations? A line of furniture based on pollen and undersea life.

Implications - While there is a presence of waif-thin models on many of the catwalks that exist today, men and women within mass culture appreciate an embrace of a more realistic body image. Companies should continue to utilize more life-like models with realistic curves in order to better appeal to everyday men and women.
