Talented Japanese artist Tomoko Konoike is behind this breathtaking wolf sculpture, which is covered in glass shards. The piece is a part of Konoike's 'Earthshine' exhibition. She calls this mythical six-legged sculpture 'Donning Animal Skins and Braided Grass.'

This stunning six-legged wolf sculpture looks almost like an animal-shaped disco ball. When light hits this glass-covered creation, the whole room seems to twinkle, as if it were filled with stars. This magical wolf is seen repeatedly in Konoike's works, used as a spiritual symbol of sorts.

One thing is undeniably true about this six-legged sculpture: it's completely captivating. This shimmering mystical creation appears powerful, beautiful and otherworldly. Konoike combines nature and fantasy in an extremely elegant way.

Konoike aims to create surreal works of art, and draws inspiration from pop culture and manga (among other things).
