I don't think I've ever seen a knitted creation as intricate as 'Transcending the Material.' As a full replica of a human skeleton, it seems like each vertebra and phalange is accounted for.

Created by Ben Cuevas, 'Transcending the Material' is a mixed-media art piece that was knitted while he was part of in Wassaic Project, an arts collective and residency program located in New York. The whole installation includes a pyramid of Borden’s condensed milk cans, atop which the skeleton rests cross-legged. Above the skeleton hang prints of body parts.
