Artist Illustrates Life, Death And Rebirth Using Only Makeup

The circle of life.

London-based artist Emma Allen has found a perfect way to explain the circle of life.

Using her elaborate body painting skills, she takes herself through all the stages of life, death, and rebirth. According to Emma, she wanted to "illustrate the transfer of energy from one incarnation to another."


It took her five days to create the stop frame animation for "Ruby."

Take a look at this other video titled "Blink" where Emma undergoes the incredible metamorphosis from a caterpillar to a butterfly.
