Waxworks at the Museo di storia naturale

We must no more ask whether the soul and body are one than ask whether the wax and the figure impressed on it are one.

Isn't it amazing that these are made of wax? For Art Thursday, models in the Botany section of the Museo di storia naturale in Florence, Italy. Photos by Sailko.

Okay, I'm officially blown away....wax, really?!

They're all delicate, too. And I can't imagine making cactus thorns out of wax.

Okay, because it's YOU presenting this, I believe it. Otherwise... wax?? I would have said NO WAY! Amazing skill.
