If you were wandering through downtown Munich today, you’d have stumbled upon a spectacular sight.

Thousands of naked people painted from head to toe in red and gold.

The colourful scenes were the handiwork of American photographer Spencer Tunick.

For his latest creation the 45-year-old filled the German city’s Max-Joseph Platz with 1,700 nude volunteers, bringing to life his interpretation of scenes from Richard Wagner’s opera Der Ring des Nibelungen.
