These Sculptures Intricately Show the Agile Nature of Animal Muscles

Michael Alm is a talented mixed media sculptor from Seattle. His passion for wildlife and anatomy has inspired him to create intricate animal structures.

He spends most of his time researching animal anatomy and reading the memoirs of the naturalist who have expanded this field.

“Wood shavings, veneers, and carved elements, are used as surrogates for the fur, sinew and bone. In much the same way naturalists find ways to preserve and reanimate specimens, Alm uses the tools at his disposal to find methods that effectively represent these creatures and create a sense of wonder around them,” reads his website.
