These delicate insect flower sculptures were designed by artist Raku Inoue, who is turning his childhood fascination into beautiful pieces of art.

The artist combines his unique passion for nature with his love and skill of art and crafting to build dreamy, lifelike figures from petals, leaves, pollen and stems. With nature and childhood curiosity being at the center of his work "both as an inspiration and as a medium," the artist continues to work with insects and creepy crawlies as part of his desire to promote inspiration and creativity. The artful embodiment of Inoue's childhood obsession with butterflies and beetles results in these beautifully crafted, colorful designs which are both gentle and intimidating.
