Amazingly realistic animals made out of wood, e.g. birds, rodents, eagle, squirrel, etc. are created by Russian artist Sergey Bobkov. Each work of art requires high level of concentration and takes many hours to complete.
Ever since he was a child, Jasenko Đorđević (aka @TOLDart) has been drawn to miniatures. As an adult, this fascination grew, leading him to develop an incredible craft carving intricate sculptures from an unconventional material—graphite. Now, Đorđević transforms the tips of pencils into small works of art, depicting subjects like flowers, animals, and portraits, all of which have to be magnified to fully appreciate the minute details.
Theo Jansen's "Strandbeest" sculptures are more like a species of artificial animals than a work of art. Their movements are incredibly life-like. Meaning "beach animals" in Dutch, Jansen's creations move with the wind and are made with plastic tubes and lemonade bottles. In the future, he wants to equip them with artificial intelligence, so they know to avoid the water and not drown.
