Art comes in many different forms and so do artists.

The 12-ton limestone rock had a body-shaped hole large enough to sit in hollowed out, while air entered through holes. Poincheval was supplied with water, soup and dried meat for the duration of the week.

This all took place at an art gallery in Paris. 

This isn’t Poincheval’s first round at strange art performances. He once spent 13-days inside of a hollowed out bear. Eeewww…gross!

Poincheval is already planning his next odd stunt, which will involve him sitting on a bunch of eggs, long enough to make them hatch. 

I knew I should have been an artist….
