UK artist Kendra Haste has been fascinated with animals, and tries to study and identify their spirits and characters. With that in mind, she creates life-like animal sculptures using simple art medium of galvanized steel wires over the skeletal framework. Her sculptures are so striking that they seem to possess life. She says, “I try to create a sense of the living, breathing subject in a static 3-D form, attempting to convey the emotional essence without indulging in the sentimental or anthropomorphic.”
Well, she did! Please scroll down and see this remarkably beautiful artwork for yourself. Enjoy!
