We all know that Arnold and James Cameron popularized the half-man, half-machine theme, but Fan Xiaoyan has taken the concept to a whole new level in this series of women with machine body parts. The tank sculptures in particular are of amazing note.

The Beijing-based artist has said that her work marks, “the arrival of a new era, a new kind of human being, a new power, a new sen­sa­tion… a sur­re­al­is­tic vir­tual world in which men and women are equal”.
