Jizai Okimono is a specialty of japanese art that focuses on recreating animals in complexity.

So when 25 year old Ryousuke Ohtake set out to create a lobster—one of the most intricate animals—in the super-realistic style without any previous experience it seemed hard to believe. In addition, wood isn’t the only medium used for this art, but it is certainly the most difficult.

The results are amazing! His sculpture moves just like the real animals.
