Peacocks are notorious for their beauty, but Laurel Roth may have just trumped Mother Nature herself with these amazing bird sculptures. Not only are these fantastic fowl recreations faithful to the anatomy of real peacocks, but you will never guess that they were made from fake fingernails, hairclips, nail polish, false eyelashes and jewelry. It only makes Roth’s work that much more amazing to think household items can be used to make something so organic looking.

Laurel Roth used fake nails to emulate the blue hue given off by peacock feathers. She then bunched up the hairclips in a manner that mimics real feather formations on birds' wings. The heads and talons of these art creations are the only thing that remotely resemble traditional sculptures. She sets her pieces on wooden bases for a more authentic, natural environment look.
