Whimsical Anatomy Sculptures of Masao Kinoshita

And now for something completely different, here are some fascinating sculptures by Japanese artist Masao Kinoshita.

Kinoshita's bronze and painted resin sculptures feature the musculature and skeletal anatomies of various animals and mythical figures like the Hindu deity Ganesha and even a Kewpie doll. As you can see, the Tokyo University of Art and Design graduate combines technical mastery of sculpting buff bodies with a generous twist of the absurd.

I'd like to see the skeleton of that bird centaur, because that bone which is the breastbone for the bird, but at the same time the pelvis for the man, is an interesting invention.
