A Korean artist named Dongwook Lee creates tiny nude sculptures that appear disturbing as they are intriguing. They are human sculptures portrayed as objects rather than humans in unusual situations. Some are stuffed in cans or syringes as a frightening scenery.

The message that is conveyed through these sculptures shows the vulnerability of humanity when stripped of all its frills. The use of humans in their most unappealing nude form creates a sense of vulnerability that justifies weakness. They are portrayed as objects rather than humans in the most unbearable situations that seems very surreal. These nude sculptures are an example of how humans often overlook the grotesque implications of humanity.

The graphic realism shows how the concept of stripping can be disturbing in a way.
