Famous Paintings Recreated on the Human Body--Chadwick and Spector's Amazing "Museum Anatomy"

These deliciously fantastic images by Chadwick and Spector take body painting to a whole new level of fantasy, magic and sheer excellence; they are a bona fide feast to the eyes and to the imagination. These human paintings are part of a creative effort called "Museum Anatomy" which seeks to impart fresh life to and recreate famous works of art by such masters as Rubens, Picasso, Botticelli and others on the human body. I'd say the result is simply masterful!
