Ever feel like you’ve forgotten something? These people might.

The amazing sculptures pictured here look like they’re missing vital organs. They are work of French artist Bruno Catalano who says the invisible bodies represent a world citizen.

Mr Catalano, 53, is originally from Morocco but a lifetime of travel as a sailor has inspired these quirky pieces of art, which often cause passers-by to do a double-take. Mr Catalano has been sculpting for 20 years and often works with others in an art foundry when making big sculptures.

An exhibition will take place in Marseille from 5-30 September , to celebrate its status as the European Capital of Culture 2013 with ten life-size sculptures exhibited at the port of Marseille.
