    "John Isaac’s 2003 work is a body of fat that is so gross it appears to have enveloped its own head.

    The flesh is distorted and appears covered in sores.

    Curator Dr Ken Arnold said the image illustrated how obesity had become a medical issue, and was designed to show how an obese person might perceive themselves."

    (And it reminded me of the fat suit that Matt Lucas wears when he plays Bubbles Devere in Little Britain.)

      It's a work of art, NOT a real person. But given our culture I can see why you'd think it was real.
