My Little Pop Icons by Mari Kasurinen

Mari Kasurinen, an artist and sculptor in Finland, explores the concepts of beauty and customization through her art.

Using My Little Ponies as blank canvases, she turns them into pop culture icons, many of which have defined and continue to define generations. From superheros to singers, she includes minute details that make the ponies look like licensed action figures.
