Incredible Peacocks Constructed from Beauty Supplies

November 9, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Using fake fingernails, nail polish, barrettes, false eyelashes, jewelry, walnut, and Swarovski crystals, artist (and former park ranger!) Laurel Roth assembles these amazing peacocks. Via her website:

I use art as a medium to examine biological ramifications of human behavior. My work juxtaposes traditional craft and artisanal techniques with non-traditional materials to examine mankind’s drive to modify itself as well as its environment. By playing with the convergence of biology and product design to create new cultural artifacts, I try to question social constructions of need, design, and individual desire.

Roth’s work with animals isn’t limited to peacocks, her wooden hominid skulls are also worth a gander.
