  1. Unbelievable balloon skills, image recreation, composition, lighting, and photography skills. One of the most exclusive and thrilling mediums I’ve ever seen! Bravo for everything you’ve done! Thank you for sharing this information.

  2. This is, in some ways, much scarier than the original. I suppose it’s because the worked balloons, combined with the incredible lighting, remind me of twisted muscle. Awe-inspiring jobs.

  3. On occasion, the OC on Reddit goes above and above. This is without a doubt the most amazing balloon art I’ve ever seen. Without a doubt.

    While some use it to farm karma, I look forward to seeing this every few months.

  4. This is an outstanding piece. It’s an absurd medium for a reproduction of one of the most unsettling paintings ever, but it does an incredible job of conveying the original’s emotion.

  5. While many people praise the sculpture, I think the staging and photography are equally impressive. Thank you for sharing this information. It would be a nice bonus if there was an album.

  6. Now go ahead and perform “The Garden of Earthly Delights”! If you’ve never been, The Prado is a must-see. Las Meninas will make a great balloon sculpture as well.

  7. This is fantastic; I’d like to use it for a liberal arts theme party at school, but my first impression is that it gives bubble butt a whole new meaning.

  8. You’re a fantastic musician, but you’d be a horrible kid’s birthday clown.

    “I want a balloon princess crown!” exclaims the boy.

    “No, that’s not it. It’s over. The Flaying of Marsyas is here.”

  9. In a recent “New Yorker” post, I learned a couple of interesting facts about this painting.

    1. The original, along with 13 other examples of Goya’s more upsetting work, was painted on the wall of Goya’s house. It must have been a lot of fun to visit!

    2. It’s thought to reflect Saturn devouring his son. Goya never gave it a name or depicted it in that light.
