These bizarre body part sculptures by French artist Philippe Mayaux incorporate human and animal body parts (presumable ceramic) and serves them up to viewers like delicacies. These artworks are actually presented on silver and brass serving trays as if they were tasty snacks, but on close examination, it's doubtful that anyone would find these sculptures appetizing.

One of these peculiar body part sculptures looks at first glance like cupcakes or tiny sandwiches but they are actually being held up by peach colored fingers and thumbs. Another sculpture incorporates eyes, foreheads and of course fingers (which are in nearly all of these sculptures). One of the most unusual artworks seen here looks almost like a cross between a human and a mouse, which is definitely attention-grabbing.
