French artist / sculptor Soasig Chamaillard created a wonderful series of pop culture characters, such as Superman and a Star Wars themed Jedi Master, from found or damaged miniature statues of the iconic Virgin Mary.

Soasig told The Huffington Post in an e-mail:

I began my religious kitsch art after noticing that a statue of the Virgin that I received from my father had been badly damaged. I then decided to restore it, with the idea of creating a more modern version of the Madonna as we would perceive her today.
