The renowned crystal artists at Daum in France have been making high-end sculptures for collectors since the late 19th century.
Now, artist Chen Changwei has broken tradition, reinventing the Chinese zodiac in a series of bizarre, surrealist busts in the tradition of pâte de cristal.
The crown jewel of the collection is the piece called People Belong to Elephant which is priced at $76,500 for the green coloured sculpture, and $38,500 for the orange coloured version.
The collection also includes the heads of a stag and a dog perched atop elongated necks, which are selling for $12,250.
