The Eden-inspired model is one of hundreds of people whose bodies have been turned into living canvases as they depict all things wild and wonderful in a brightly-coloured spectacle.
The kalidoscopic models are all taking part in the annual Body Painting World Festival where hundreds of artists from across the globe converge for their yearly celebration.
