Isana Yamada is a graduate student in design at the Tokyo University for the Arts. For his graduation project, Rocket News 24 reports, he composed sculptures of 6 whales that float through space, containing within their bodies detailed dioramas of the ocean waters and floor. They're mesmerizingly beautiful.

The six whales represent the six realms in Buddhist cosmology: the Heavenly Realm, the Asura, the Animal Realm, Hell, the Ghost Realm, and the Human Realm.
