It is hard to believe that the sculptures created by Jennifer Trask, an artist based in Hudson Valley, New York, is made out of bone. Delicate and intricate, there are some pieces that look like the real thing, for instance the flowers. It is not surprising, then that Jennifer Trask states, "I want to make something that I believe could be real, something that could have happened on its own."

Of course, bone isn't Jennifer Trask's only go-to material when it comes to her elaborate works of art. She also sources gold and other found objects, all of which often date as far back as the 18th century. She uses these antiquated materials to emphasize her craft in magical proportions.
