Ellen June Jewett's Surreal Sculptures
When I first saw Ellen June Jewett's works from deviantART, I thought they were macabre and gory, but upon closer inspection, I realized they were completely the opposite. What looked like rotting flesh and jutting bones were actually vines, branches, and even small animals! I was amazed. The luxurious details she puts makes her creatures look alive. Her sculptures remind me of the Night Elf Ancients from Warcraft and Hayao Miyazaki's Spirit of the Forest from Princess Mononoke.
