These brilliant, multifunctional textile sculptures are called ‘The Shaman Suit,’ ‘The Grieving Suit’ and ‘The Death Suit.’ They are made by Swedish-born artist Nadine Byrne and uses the human body as their frame.

I love the fact that these body suits are wearable artpieces that can be used as a costume, and also intended to be used for video and live performances. Each sculpture has a reference to mythology and tells a story - any story that needs to be told basically. Neat.
