Realistic Lobster Sculpture by Ryosuke Ohtake

Published Sep 17, 2014

Jizai okimono is a sculpture technique that involves “carving realistic animals whose bodies and limbs are all animated through joints just like the real living thing”.

Japanese artist Ryosuke Ohtake created this incredibly intricate animated lobster from wood.

“What stunned many was that not only was the piece carved from wood (which is considered far more difficult than using copper) but the fact that this was Ohtake’s first official jizai okimono.”
