Historical Figures as Modern Day People

Artist Becca Saladin has an amazing skill. She can bring long-gone historical figures to life by showing you how they would look as modern-day people. Below is Hatshepsut reimagined from an ancient statue.


Saladin explains how her love of history inspired her to bring historical figures to life. She tackles subjects ranging from Pocahontas to the wives of Henry VII.


Check out Louis XIV, looking like he’s ready to attend a board meeting.


She doesn’t limit herself to the distant past. Saladin also reimagines icons like Grace Kelly and Ingrid Bergman as 21st Century women.
