Amazing pictures which capture the beauty of wildlife on the human handGuido Daniele has turned his hand to creating a wholly different style of painting.
Rather than working on canvas, he uses human hands to produce these stunning animals - like a Technicolor version of the "shadows on the wall" game.
Guido, from Milan, started working with living canvases in 1990, painting the bodies of models for advertising campaigns. Then he began specialising in hands.
The whole process takes anything from two to ten hours - and the models can't even twiddle their thumbs.
