Talented artist Claire Milner offers a unique take on hyperrealistic paintings of animals by using colorful gemstones instead of paint to recreate the faces of breathtaking -- but sadly endangered creatures -- such as tigers, elephants, polar bears and gorillas. Her works of art are majestic as well as thought-provoking as they make the viewer admire the beauty of the animal and want to protect them.

Talking about endangered animals is one thing, but seeing them evokes a whole other emotional response that gets people active. Milner's work does just that by using opulent Swarovski crystals in an array of hues to recreate dozens of animals around the world that are close to extinction. The detail used pertains to the various sized crystals selected in each piece.
