Kirk McGuire's bronze sea creature tables manage to be creepy and classy at the same time. The San Francisco-based artist works exclusively with bronze and has created over 1,500 sculptures over the course of his 30-year career. His tables are extraordinarily detailed, with each metal cephalopod looking almost as if the live animal itself was cast in bronze.

McGuire says he's fascinated by wildlife, which explains just why he chooses the creatures of the deep as his muses. Of his many creations, the squid table is especially amazing, with each suction cup expertly detailed and each tentacle curling just so. Such craftsmanship isn't seen every day, which could explain why these bronze sea monster tables cost so much. If you'd like to own one you need to be prepared to pony up at least $16,500.
