Imaginative artist Jitish Kallat is the mind behind these bone-filled auto artworks. These sculptures were designed to resemble various vehicles, from oil tankers to motorcycles. While using bone to construct these artworks makes them seem a little bit morbid, it also makes them all the more impressive.

Jitish Kallat's skeletal auto sculptures were inspired by pictures he possessed of vehicles that had been burned and destroyed in riots. These bony creations represent the automotive ruins seen in those photos.

These cleverly designed sculptures are currently on display at an exhibit called Art Stage Singapore. These artworks are unsurprisingly haunting. Kallat transforms the bones of departed creatures into spooky auto replicas in a way that is guaranteed to send chills down the spine of art fans everywhere.
