Life-size sculptures of plump women, often in gravity-defying postures, are on display at the Liu Haisu Art Museum in Shanghai.

Created by Xu Hongfei, director of the Guangzhou Academy of Sculpture in Guangdong province, 10 large pieces are displayed outdoors in front of the main building, while another 40 pieces are in the ground floor exhibition hall of the museum.

"Xu has captured the flow of light and shadows, using the curves on the body and the volume itself in these unusually plump women, and established his unique vocabulary of sculpture art," says critic Mao Shi'an.

The exhibition has toured 18 cities at home and abroad before Shanghai.

Besides using glass fiber, steel and bronze, the artist also created pieces with jade, red sandal wood and other materials not often seen in modern sculpture.
