The whale sculptures of Ruilin Wang, an artist hailing from Beijing, China, are something out of a children's book. Surreal, imaginative and child-like, it is almost as though they are part of a story about the beginning of life or the Earth. Considering how big whales are, it is no wonder that they would be depicted as carrying land and water on their backs.

Dubbed Dreams-Ark, the whale sculptures are meant to inspire people to indulge in a little fantasy when viewing them. Full of intricate details, the whale sculptures could easily be mistaken for illustrations at first. Of course, the dimensions are too realistic to be fooled for long. Perhaps they will inspired a storybook.
