Artist builds a wearable batman suit made entirely out of tree bark

French artist Christophe Guinet, who also goes by the name of Monsieur Plant, has created an entire batman suit made out of tree bark. Known for his love of nature and experimenting with natural elements to create his stunning artworks, the Paris-born creative – together with Warner Bros France and the Splendens Factory – has designed the iconic hero suit primarily out of tree bark but also vegetal moss, lichen and fungus.

How did he do it? He created a foam mould of the Batman suit and helmet, which he then carefully wrapped and covered in layers of all the natural elements, forming the suit's distinctive features – everything from the pointed nose to the pointy ears. The outcome leaves you in no doubt that this is Batman, just not quite as we normally expect him.
