Czech Designer Monika Horcicova's sculpture called 'The Wheel of Life' is creepy and beautiful. The artist was inspired by many concepts to create the structure.

Looking like a wheel of bones, the 3D-printed skeletal sculpture takes inspiration from the infinity symbol. The structure is round to represent the cycle of life and death. The wheel is made up of walking legs, which refer to people in motion. Bones are fragile and yet they can carry the human frame through life. Horcicova printed the sculpture in individual pieces and then assembled it.

The structure is morbid, yet it does make you see the beauty of the human body and recognize that even something as basic as bones can be made into something beautiful.
