If you think you know your animals then try to name this amazing exotic pet sea creature which scientists have not actually named as yet!
And this is not the only one, look at these other sea creatures that still do not have a scientific name.
Okay, so joke over. These are not animals at all but in fact sculptures made from pencils. But you have to admit the the resemblance to real life sea creatures is quite amazing. They are the creations of an amazingly talented artist call Jennifer Maestre. So spends countless hours of dedication and precision. In each of her creations she cuts hundred of colored pencils to very specific lengths. Her creativity turns these pencils into the most life designs we have ever seen.
Her artist statement is as follows:
“My sculptures were originally inspired by the form and function of the sea urchin. The spines of the urchin, so dangerous yet beautiful, serve as an explicit warning against contact. The alluring texture of the spines draws the touch in spite of the possible consequences. The tension unveiled, we feel push and pull, desire and repulsion. The sections of pencils present aspects of sharp and smooth for two very different textural and aesthetic experiences. Paradox and surprise are integral in my choice of materials. Quantities of industrially manufactured objects are used to create flexible forms reminiscent of the organic shapes of animals and nature. Pencils are common objects, here, these anonymous objects become the structure. There is true a fragility to the sometimes brutal aspect of the sculptures, vulnerability that is belied by the fearsome texture.”
Her designs are inspired by both plants and animals although we have chosen her sea creatures there are many more.
