Life-like Needle Felted Sculptures by Olga Lai

Olga Lai is an artist from Russia who creates these unique life-like animals and fantasy creatures. I first saw her work on Deviant Art where she has a gallery filled with the amazing sculptures. Her work is full of fine details and an amazing result of labor of love. For a second I thought the owl was real. To construct the sculptures she starts felting on wire using Russian and Italian merino wool and for features like eyes she uses clear glass cabochons. She can be contacted if you have something in mind that you would like her to custom create for you. You can visit her online store where some of her sculptures are available for purchase.
