People were appalled by a sculpture depicting a fallen angel in gruesome detail that was unveiled in Beijing earlier this week.
The duo explained that the work illustrates the tension and transition between surrealism and realism, between the supernatural and the mundane.
The angel has become completely powerless, unable to do God's will or to help others.
The artwork was created by two controversial Beijing artists, Sun Yuan and Peng Yu.
These artists are renowned for working with extreme materials such as human fat tissue, live animals and baby cadavers to deal with serious issues like perception, death and the human condition.

Fallen angels are usually known as devils. But this one by Sun Yuan and Peng Yu is a lot different. Made from fiber-reinforced polymer and silica gel, this angel takes the form of an old woman dressed in a white gown, and the wings on her back have been plucked clean. The angel is either asleep or dead. Its made manifest in the physical world, yet cannot help the believers nor carry out divine will.
Sun Yuan and Peng Yu is an artist duo from Beijing. They have had created installations using cadavers and fat tissue. However, not all of their project are metaphysical. Many exhibits have featured guns, like a blind group disassemble of AK rifles. The Angel is now displayed in Dominique and Sylvain Levy collection.
