Amazing Fusions of Animals and Plant by Ellen Jewett
Canadian artist Ellen Jewett is known for her elaborately decorated polymer sculptures that combine wildlife with flowers, plants, and trees. Each sculpture features elaborate elements that connect the animal back to the environment, such as green leaves that sprout from the wings of a black cockatoo, ferns unfurl from the tail of a peacock or a marsh of cattails grows from the abdomen of a dragonfly in another.
When asked the design behind those amazing fusion, the artist describes her works as “anthrozoology meets psychoanalysis,” where tiny clues left in the feathers, fur, and tentacles of each piece lead to a greater story of its meaning.
