Superhero Fetuses: Destined for Greatness
September 21st, 2011
Ever wondered what your favorite superhero looked like as a baby? How about a fetus? French artist Alexandre Nicolas asked himself that same question, which is why he came up with the arcane sculptures that depict some of the world’s favorite superheroes as fetuses.
These sculptures are part of his Prédestinées (predestined) series, and they are quite interesting. You’ll find Batman, Superman, Wonderwoman, the Silver Surfer, the Hulk, Catwoman, and Spider-Man. There’s also a Hitler fetus, although that one is a bit more disturbing – and he was anything but a superhero.
“Creation and its risks”, that how Alexandre introduces his series of sculptures. The sculptures were created in 2008 and weigh about 40lbs each. They are currently on display at the Xavier Ronse gallery in Belgium.
