Although it's pretty darn evident that the human species dominates over all other life-forms on the planet, Brooklyn-based artist Caitlin Hackett explores the idea of "human denial of our animal nature." Through beautiful yet disturbing depictions of human/animal hybrids, she takes quite the literal approach to the topic.

Dubbing her art form as 'contemporary mythology,' Caitlin Hackett's intricate creations "create a language that speaks about the human animal relationship and the natural and unnatural elements of it," according to the artist herself.
