Extremely brave super heroes who have already saved our planet numerous times now have a different look.

Artist Sacha Goldberger – who is famous for his “Super Mamika” photoshoot where he turned his Grandmother into a Superhero to cheer her up – recently have an exhibition at the School Gallery Paris for his latest work: Transforming Pop Culture icons into 16th Century Flemish aristocrats.

“As science fiction meets history of art, time meets an inexhaustible desire for mythology which is within each of us,” a forward to the project explains.

More than 110 people took part in the unusual project, including five costume designers, seven make up artists, five hairdressers and 60 actors.

The heroes (and villains!) portrayed include Wonder Woman, Yoda, the Hulk, Joker and Spider-Man.
