Milló first sculpts his models by covering them in clay. He then meticulously paints these “canvases of flesh” using pigments from India. Once the painting of his models is completed, Milló adorns these living sculptures with fruits, fauna and vegetables. While Milló is sculpting and painting his models, he is energized by a live band playing improvisational music. Only after the painting and sculpting is completed, a process that takes several hours, does Milló photograph his models.
