Flavorwire reports that photographer Inge Prader has taken life imitating art to a whole new level. Prader re-staged Klimt’s famed works including “Danae,””Death and Life,” and the “Beethoven Frieze,” enlisting live models to give a new dimension to these iconic pieces.

The series was created for Vienna’s Life Ball, which this year took inspiration from Viennese Secessionist artists and raised funds to fight HIV/AIDS.
