These awesome and incredibly detrailed animal sculptures are the work of Canadian artist Ellen Jewett. They feel like creatures who’ve managed to wander out of people’s dreams and into this world.

To Ellen, sculpting has always been about life; biological narratives, emotions, movement, balance and observations about life’s subtleties and overtures. Her aesthetic ranges from the hyper-real, to the surreal,fantastic, and the grotesque. Ellen’s creative process is truly her own, she enjoys making and engineering original material combinations to suit her needs.

Ellen’s beautiful sculptures are available for purchase through her Etsy shop, including custom order pieces.
