These sculptures by artist Kate MccGwire may inspire more terror than awe. Each uses bird feathers to create almost abstract shapes -- almost, because they definitely resemble coiled-up snakes.

Most of these feather sculptures by Kate MccGwire are encased in a glass box. One standalone piece takes over an entire room. The feather sculptures were photographed by Francis Ware, JP Bland and Tessa Angus.

Products that bring this element into a buyers home is a great way to appeal to this demographic. In doing so, companies will fulfill this need for aspects of the outdoors and have an edge over their competitors. Stats for Ferocious Feather Sculptures Trending: Older & Mild
