You’ve got to hand it to Guido Daniele—he makes amazing artwork! The Italian artist paints human hands to look like animals. He calls his creations "handimals."
To form the animal shapes, Daniele poses the hands using a technique similar to making shadow puppets. He uses body paint and theatrical makeup to achieve the realistic painting effects. Once each handimal is complete, the artist photographs his work.
