Mat Szulik is a freelance illustrator and 3D artist from Poland who makes wooden animal sculptures for his project 'PolyWood.' What makes Mat Szulik's designs unique is the immense level of detail and care he pours into each, while also sculpting the animals with a more modern look.

As he explains, the PolyWood project was created to show how wood sculpting could be pushed to its limits. This is evident in the collection that includes a stunning elephant which carries every detail, from its eyelids to long curved tusks. Also impressive is the artist's giraffe that towers next to a sculpted tree, surrounded by wooden blades of grass and rocks. Although wooden animal sculptures are nothing new, the delicacy of Mat Szulik's creations make them one of a kind.
