Beijing artists Sun Yuan and Peng Yu have been recognized to create installations using real cadavers or human fat tissue, although their latest creation does not embody these macabre elements, it’s so realistic and unsettling that it might as well. This realistic sculpture, titled “Angel,” depicts a fallen angel in the form of an old woman, her wings devoid of feathers, that appears to be sleeping or possibly dead. It was made from silica gel, fiberglass, stainless steel, and woven mesh.
The artist remark on their website cryptically unearths the project’s goal: highlighting the strain and transition between the supernatural and the mundane. The angel, a transcendent being, has become powerless, unable to hold out God’s will, or to assist those who believe in its existence. Below are photos of a realistic sculpture of a fallen angel.
