There are so many beautiful forms of art in this world that go unappreciated on a daily basis, but Ukrainian photographer Vadim Stein is combining two of them and blowing people’s mind at the same time.

Stein was educated in sculpture and restoration and his amazing works of photography channel that as his subjects look like perfectly chiseled statues engaged in entrancing positions.

Except, they are actually dancers caught in the most graceful poses imaginable.

“Solving the aesthetic problem, I also reveal many ethical questions,” Stein has said. “For me, such things as love and death are revealed through the aesthetic category, beauty is the predecessor of ethics.”

Check out some of Stein’s work below:
