The incredible artwork is comprised of seven nude women who have each been covered in sparkling white body paint and brightly coloured patterns. When the models all get into position they form a perfect sugar skull – the brightly coloured icon of the Day of the Dead festival. The idea for the eye-catching piece was thought up by Los Angeles based photographer Rene Rodriguez and brought to life by Cheryl Lipstreu. The artist and her assistants spent four hours covering the models in white, shimmering body paint and then painstakingly added the bold colours. Cheryl said: “Initially I positioned all the models on the floor and then roughly sketched out a design on them. “Then I painted each one with the help of some assistants. “Normally the painting process takes around six to seven hours but we managed to do it in four”.
