【動画】ミケランジェロ「アダムの創造」をマシュマロ1万個、製作時間168時間で再現


バチカンのシスティーナ礼拝堂の天井に描かれた、ルネサンス期の芸術家ミケランジェロによる巨大な作品「アダムの創造」をご存知だろうか? そんな歴史的芸術作品を、なんとマシュマロで再現してしまった女性がいる。


このレプリカは様々な食材を使ってアートを生み出すクリエイター、ミシェル・ウィボヲさんの最新作で、原寸大レプリカを「いわゆるスイーツな系の食材だけで作ってしまおう!」というコンセプトで作成されたもの。

オリジナルが巨大なだけに、約1万個のマシュマロや、もはや天文学的数のケーキ用装飾で色合いまで忠実に再現されているから驚きだ。もちろん、相応の絵心もなければ不可能なワザである。

ミケランジェロの没後450年を記念して作られたというこの大作、名付けて「アダムのベーキング・ケーキ」の完成には、なんと168時間も費やしたんだとか。巨大なキャンバス上にあるのは、接着剤として使用したバターとヴァニラのアイシングを含め、すべて食べられるスイーツだ。

「細かい色を丁寧に並べていく作業は、神経も体力も使うし大変でした。でもミケランジェロは礼拝堂の天井を見上げて、4年間も絵の具を顔に滴り落ちさせながら、無数の細かい絵を描き続けたの。そのことのほうがよほどの偉業だと思います」

と、謙虚に語るミシェルさん。現在ロンドンの聖パンクラス教会に展示されている同作は、いずれチャリティのためにオークションに出品される予定だ。

短気でカッとなりやすい性格だったというミケランジェロ。数百年後に自身の作品がスイーツで再現されるなんて知ったら、一体どんな顔をするだろうか...。

WHAT: Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan presents Pope John Paul II lying on his side clutching a large pastoral staff, felled by an errant meteorite.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Did you read the meteorite part of the description?

WHAT: A lovely watercolor by British comedian Robert Popper. Here's his caption: "I dun a painting of the Pope ('Goodbye Pope'): pic.twitter.com/bQm9Z45l."

WHY WE LOVE IT: We're just suckers for homemade pope paintings.

WHAT: This controversial Pope John Paul II statue by artist Oliviero Rainaldi stands in Rome.

WHY WE LOVE IT: When the statue was first unveiled in front of Rome's main train station in May 2011, it was widely criticized by passers-by as looking more like Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini than the beloved Polish pope. Even the Vatican's own art critic wrote that it looked like a "bomb" had landed.

WHAT: Martinho Dias' color-hatched portrait of Pope Benedict XVI.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Dias has a whole series dedicated to intriguing portraits of Benedict XVI.

WHAT: French anticlerical artist Jean-Paul Laurens painted this landmark work in 1870.

WHY WE LOVE IT: It depicts the famed "Cadaver Synod," when controversial pope Formosus (891 to 896 AD) was posthumously tried and convicted of perjury.

Image: Jean-Paul Laurens (1838–1921), Le Pape Formose et Etienne VII - Concile cadavérique de 897 (Pope Formosus and Stephen VII - The "Cadaver Synod"), 1870, oil, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nantes (Wikimedia)

WHAT: A hilarious take on the pope courtesy of Italian artist Pep Marchegiani.

WHY WE LOVE IT: It's part of an entire series titled "Vatigun," which you can view here.

Image: Pep Marchegiani

WHAT: A tribute to Pope John Paul II painted on a security gate in New York City. Artist James De La Vega, a graffiti artist with a degree from Cornell University, painted it on a Spanish Harlem storefront.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Who doesn't love some good papal street art design?

WHAT: China-based artist Michael Tsaturyan's "Pope Art." Get it?

WHY: Catholic Andy Warhol would be so proud.

WHAT: Diego Velázquez's portrait of Pope Innocent X.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Scroll to the next slide...

Image: Portrait of Pope Innocent X, by Diego Velázquez (1650). Roma, Galleria Doria-Pampili.

WHAT: Francis Bacon's remix of Velazquez's Pope Innocent X.

WHY WE LOVE IT: It is definitely one of the more frightening artworks we have ever seen.

Image: Francis Bacon, Untitled (Pope), Circa 1954, Est. $18/25 million, Sotheby’s New York, Contemporary Art Evening Sale, 13 November 2012.

WHAT: A portrait of Pope Leo X, with Giulio de' Medici (1478-1534), future Pope Clement VII, to the left and his cousin Luigi de Rossi (1474-1519) to the right.

WHY WE LOVE IT: We're not trying to stereotype here, but this looks like it could be an early scene in "Goodfellas." Just look at Clement VII's scowl and tell us he's not going to make someone pay.

Image: Pope Leo X, between 1518 and 1519, oil on wood, 154 × 119 cm (60.6 × 46.9 in), Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence

WHAT: A portrait of Pope Benedict XVI by German artist Michael Triegel.

WHY WE LOVE IT: When Pope Benedict greeted the artist at the Vatican, he reportedly said, "Ah, so you’'re my Raphael..."

WHAT: Portrait of Pope Julius II by Raphael.

WHY WE LOVE IT: That is one sad pope, guys. (We do love the copious amount of rings he's rocking, though.)

Image: Raphael (1483–1520), Pope Julius II, 1511–1512, oil on panel, 63 × 40 cm (24.8 × 15.7 in), National Gallery

WHAT: The Vatican's newest official court artist Natalia Tsarkova poses next to a painting of Pope Benedict XVI on December 18, 2012 in her studio by Rome.

WHY WE LOVE IT: After Michelangelo and Raphael, the Vatican's latest official painter is something of an unusual choice -- an ebullient Russian woman with a pet owl.

Commuters step around a 3D art exhibit entitled "Escape the Rat Race" painted on the concourse of Victoria railway station in London to promote a pest control company, Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2012.

Known for his impressive 3D pavement art, Edgar Mueller created this gigantic chasm for the West India Quay Festival in London. Mueller derives some of his inspiration from the "Ice Age" films.

At first glance, street artist Julian Beever's sidewalk creations look like unfinished chalk drawings of oddly morphed animals or landscapes. But if you happen upon the one perfect angle, the image magically snaps into shape, showing you a giant charging snail or an aerial view of Times Square.

The process is called anamorphosis, which involves drawing a distorted image which gives the impression of a three-dimensional scene from a certain vantage point. According to NPR, the talented artist sets up a camera or a viewfinder in the specific spot he intends his viewers to stand and draws his killer whales and beachy snapshots from that perspective. So if a passerby views the work from that same perspective, the drawings jump to life in their three-dimensional glory. But if they stand from any other position, the chalk creation appears to be elongated fragments of an incomplete design.

French street art duo TSF Crew create logic-defying works of art in the run-down areas of industrial France. Combining the cheeky thrills of a well-executed optical illusion with tst makes the perfect combination.

Commuter Katherine Ware relaxes on street artist Kurt Wenner's 3D work of art as he adds the finishing touches in Waterloo Station on October 17, 2007 in London, England. Wenner is famous for combining traditional street painting with classical training, illusion and performance to invent an art form of his own know as anamorphic, illusionistic or 3D painting.

Kurt Wenner, 3D chalk master, recently created a less perilous way to climb on the Grand Canyon with his massive optical illusion. Located at the South Rim of the park, the installation looks 3D from certain points of view thanks to 150 hours of hard work on Wenner's part. While it may not measure up to the real Grand Canyon experience, the photo ops may come out victorious.

British artists 3D Joe & Max created this stunning optical illusion in conjunction with Reebok CrossFit as part of the seventh annual Guinness World Records Day. The 1,160.4-square-meter painting, seen in London, broke the world record for the largest 3D street art.

Dutch artist Leon Keer is known for his impressive street art displays that play with perspective, but he also knows how to attract onlookers -- by choosing a recognizable theme. One of his most recent works seen in the Netherlands paid homage to Pac-Man, the 1980s arcade game.

Artist Qi Xinghua created this work of art entitled "Macao's One Impression" outside a local shopping center in Macao. Hidden within the 120 meter-long optical illusion are all of the city's historical and architectural landmarks.

A Flickr user photographed this impossible object on a building facade. The rectangle uses overlap and various perspective angles to create the illusion of the twisted shaped.
