Russian artist and musician Svetlana Kolosova has created an interactive series titled Palm Drawings. Within the series are her depictions of fairy tales, produced here via hands.

Fingers and skin are covered in their entirety in sheets of blue and pink paint in Palm Drawings. Amid the cracks of skin is her portrayal of imagined Disney scenes, seen in her projects titled The Snow Maiden, The Little Mermaid and The Little Match Girl. Her attention to detail is so meticulous that one often forgets that the hand is used in the place of the canvas here. Given the precision of her work, akin artistic endeavors may begin to take shape, ones that like Lolosova will use the body as a medium.
