NEW YORK (PIX11) — World Cup fever is felt worldwide, but this artist takes the cake for most dedicated, and creative.

Emma Allen, a London-based artist, has used her body to portray the gold trophy of the FIFA games.

The 33-year-old used two types of gold body paint to recreate the iconic piece of World Cup hardware, according to the London Independent.

The three-hour process included two hours for makeup alone, with an additional hour to perfect the shots.

Allen’s picture has been picked up by countless media outlets and fawned over by international futbol fans.
