Korean artist and sculpture Park Chan is the creator behind these metal sculptures that feature the use of 'sliced images.' The artist constructs metal sculptures from thin metal layers that he puzzles together using three dimensional topography charts. After piecing the layers together he fuses each piece with a bendable cover that allows for the movement and shaping of each sculpture.

The sliced image sculpture features a collection of human forms -- the most recognizable one being Marilyn Monroe. Park Chan was able to capture the movement of Marilyn Monroe's skirt and his ability to create movement out of something that is so stiff and unbendable like steel is absolutely commendable. The other sculptures featured in the artists steel sliced image collection include various bodies in motion and bended positions.
