This talented artist is creating powerful sculptures of terrifying animals using materials you could find at your local hardware store. Kendra Haste’s lions, monkeys, and giraffes are made from an armature wrapped layer-by-layer in chicken wire.
The truly amazing part of this work is how realistic the animals look from afar. Additionally, the galvanized wire appears surprisingly solid, even creating a convincing soft surface.

Haste explains her subject matter: “What interests me most about studying animals is identifying the spirit and character of the individual creatures. I try to create a sense of the living, breathing subject in a static 3D form, attempting to convey the emotional essence without indulging in the sentimental or anthropomorphic.”
