Ever wondered if Vaseline could be sculpted into works of art? Quirky artist Jungki Beak wondered too, so he decided to accept the challenge and create avant-garde battle art sculpted entirely out of Vaseline.

While Vaseline probably isn't the first material a sculptor would choose to work with, it holds up beautifully in the battle art context. The helmets and body armour were sculpted out of several layers of carefully applied Vaseline. I'm truly surprised at how well the malleable texture of the Vaseline held up and how Jungki was able to carve such clean, well-cut and precise lines. The shiny luminous texture of the Vaseline lends itself well as a substitute for conventional metal and each piece of sculpted armour looks unbelievably realistic. Jungki's Vaseline battle art stands in as an accurate representation of creative craftmanship.
