Berlin-based sculptor Markus Fielder crafts incredibly realistic objects from beeswax, right down to the smallest detail. Using only the wax to form his life-like works, he somehow makes a balloon and a feather look weightless, while his knife and axe sculptures appear sharp and threatening. Fielder showcases his sculpture until he eventually he melts down the wax for reuse in a new creation.
Beeswax seems to be a pretty unusual material to create modern artwork, but Fielder is inspired by the relative suppleness and malleability of softened wax, and its infinite possibilities for reuse.
Take a peek at his current range of jaw-droppingly real wax-made objects in our gallery above.
