Sculptor Lee Cross has a knack for recreating hyperrealistic stuffed animals that look so real you might even think these toys were living and breathing creatures.
Cross is based out of Alaska and she usually goes under the name Wood Splitter Lee. She has mastered the art of creating unbelievably realistic plush baby animals that look like the real thing. Each stuffed toy is made from cloth, paint and synthetic fur to recreate the authentic look of a wide variety of animals from pandas to lions. Each animal is impressively constructed by Cross entirely by hand without the use of molds. Sometimes Cross even recreates fantastical beast plush animals that combine imaginative design with mythical colors. Many of Cross' creations have sold on eBay -- some for just under $1000!
