Hop art: Artist’s incredible body painting transforms five people into a tropical frog

Mr Stoetter used five people to recreate this lifelike tropical tree frog. One person can be seen in the centre, acting as the frog’s backbone, while two others can be seen crouched on the floor, acting as the frog’s back legs. Two others are sat upright either side of the ‘backbone’ with their arms and hands strategically placed to replicate the front legs
