Pictures of men, women, children and even a dog, drenched in honey




When it comes to interpreting some of the more abstract forms of art, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

But in the case of Blake Little, I guess you could say bee-holder.

This Los Angeles-based artist is no stranger to coming up with some pretty sweet concepts for his artwork.

In his latest project, Preservation, Little puts his models in a bit of a sticky situation by covering them in gallons of golden honey.

While dumping a bucket of honey over someone’s head in the name of art may sound a little strange, the results of his sweet experiment are simply stunning.

The oozing honey transforms his models into beautiful works of dripping art that are simply the bee’s knees.

Little uses everything from an infant to an 85-year-old woman in his visual series in order to capture “the sculptural nature of a human body, regardless of its shape, size or form.”

By covering his subjects in the sugary substance, Little is essentially able to “diffuse the personal qualities and make the subject unrecognizable,” thus making all of his subjects look like golden statues in these incredible photographs.

It’s not hard to see how the title of this project comes into play considering these honey-encased models almost look like they’ve been frozen in time and forever fossilized in a thick layer of amber.

Take a look at the photos below to see Little’s latest project.
