An artist in Switzerland is really trying to make an impression. Artist Andrea Hasler recently unveiled a new piece of work that's been left in the Swiss Alps. That piece? Well, see if you can guess what it's supposed to be:

If you're stumped, here's the answer: it's supposed to be a block of human flesh.

The Huffington Post has a description of what you're seeing and why:

Hasler crafted two site-specific sculptures as part of a six-week artist residency in Verbier at Switzerland's 3-D Foundation. The uncanny cubes comment on the excessive luxury tourism industry that swallows the Swiss mountains up during the winter months.

To depict the sudden change in the population as well as the atmosphere, Hasler plopped two fleshy forms onto the landscape, both wrapped in luxe gold chains.

Now, the large blobs aren't actually flesh. The Huffington Post says they are actually made of wax. In case you want to seem them in person, they'll apparently be there until July 5, 2016.

Hasler also posted a video on Vimeo with some more shots:
