Check out these beautiful and super life-like sculptures that artist Matthew Albanese builds with everyday materials (such as steel wool and cooking spices) and then photographs to look like real-life images from nature.  Some of his designs are less than 3 feet long, but seem life size due to the how he photographs them.  “It is extremely difficult and time consuming,” Albanese has said.  “The image comes alive only when the camera is set at the precise point of viewing – giving it an artificially created sense of depth.”
