Sculpted Natural Elements Carried by Animals on Their Backs by Ellen Jewett

Canadian artist Ellen Jewett makes these amazing sculptures of animals carrying elaborate landscapes and natural elements on their backs.

"Each sculpture is constructed using an additive technique, layered from inside to out by an accumulation of innumerable tiny components. Many of these components are microcosmic representations of plants, animals and objects. Some are beautiful, some are grotesque and some are fantastical. The singularity of each sculpture is the sum total of its small narrative structures."

Ellen sculptures are gaining huge popularity and featured among websites such Colossal, Reddit, Bored Panda, Ecology Global Network, American Crafters and others. Her sculptures can be found in both public and private collections worldwide. You can see more of her work I featured here.
