The work of Roxanne Jackson may not be for everyone, but it would be hard for people to deny the level of skill and talent needed to create such intricate sculptures. Revolving around a macabre state of mind, the three dimensional depictions offer an alternative to the ever popular Madame Tussauds wax museums. Granted, Roxanne Jackson uses a variety of materials including paper mâché, clay and more.

From disembodied hands to creepy animals and surreal busts, Roxanne Jackson's sculptures seem to be born out of the dark depths of her mind. Beautiful Decay writes that "her themes of death, extinction and transformation mold into a still menagerie of Jungian imagery where half man/half animal, sleeping snakes, faceless figures and scary kitties are the norm."
