These sculptures by artist Kate MccGwire may inspire more terror than awe. Each uses bird feathers to create almost abstract shapes -- almost, because they definitely resemble coiled-up snakes.

Most of these feather sculptures by Kate MccGwire are encased in a glass box. One standalone piece takes over an entire room. The feather sculptures were photographed by Francis Ware, JP Bland and Tessa Angus.

Implications - For the millions of consumers living the metropolitan life, finding time to appreciate nature is difficult. Products that bring this element into a buyers home is a great way to appeal to this demographic. In doing so, companies will fulfill this need for aspects of the outdoors and have an edge over their competitors.
