This woman made of candles is quite realistic. In fact, if the candles were not lit, she would look mummified. It is this deathly aesthetic that gives the entire sculpture a creepy vibe, despite how impressive it really is.
Created by Belgium fashion design house A.F. Vandevorst, this woman made of candles made its disturbing debut during the the Arnhem Mode Biennale 2011, an art and fashion show that was held this past July. This wax woman with embedded candle wicks is so captivating, it wouldn't be surprising if she were mimicked by other artists. Actually, it wouldn't be surprising if regular people decided to create something similar for the Halloween season.
Completely unique, this woman made of candles most definitely stole the show. The candles themselves are mesmerizing.
