Homo Animatus by Hyungkoo Lee

Korean artist Hyungkoo Lee has explored cartoons in a never-before-seen way in a new series called Homo Animatus. He’s imagined what our favourite cartoon characters’ skeletons would look like and turned them into detailed sculptures using┬áresin, aluminum sticks, stainless steel wires, springs and oil paint. The models are displayed as they would be in a national history museum with some of the comical characters including Donald Duck and his three nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie, Wile E. Coyote and his arch-nemesis Road Runner, Tom and that cheeky rodent Jerry, and our old favourite, Bugs Bunny.
