Russian Artist Creates Realistic Animal Sculptures


Irina Shcherbakova of Iren Toys is a fiber artist based in Russia who has been making toys since 2012. She studied art in school and later in a university. She makes her own patterns to form animals shapes with natural materials, the body is made of a wire frame to which the head is reinforced. she hand-paints the glass eyes to bring the sculptures to life. Some of her sculptures have movable limbs and bendable head.

I first saw her creations on Instagram where she shares her new sculptures and their process with photos behind the scenes. Her owl, otter, sloth, bear, monkey, bat, and rabbit look so real; one easily can confuse.
