Crowds jostle, armed with their smart phones to capture an image of this deer with antlers that slowly morph into branches of a tree.

The biggest art fair hits Hong Kong with the third edition of Art Basel. The show features 233 galleries from 37 countries and territories, presenting works ranging from the Modern period of the early 20th century to the most contemporary artists of today.

Here’s some of the most stunning artworks from the show:
