British sculptor Louise Giblin’s project entitled Bodycast Olympians is a series of five British sportspeople including gymnast Beth Tweddle (casts pictured below) and athletes Dame Kelly Homes and Sally Gunnell.
The video below shows the process Louise goes through to create these awesome pieces.
Who wouldn’t want to be made into a gladiator, that’s what I say!
