Michele Astolfi's shiny animal sculptures are lifelike and opulent. The art pieces celebrate nature's majestic beauty and are constructed using a combination of silks, resins, natural stones and gleaming crystals.

The Italian artist creates stunning animal art that can be admired in this photo series. She depicts sea horses, butterflies and even jellyfish in realistic sculptures that are then adorned with opulent stone and crystal elements. In addition to insects and underwater creatures, the artist also depicts winged creatures like flamingos, whose gorgeous feathers she recreates.

Michele Astolfi creates shiny animal sculptures that resemble intricately constructed and glamorous jewelry pieces. The objects are delicate and texture-enriched, making one feel like they are truly looking at a living creature rather than an art piece.
