This lobster sculpture is intricately carved out of cow bone in the Philippines. Delicately crafted hinges allow nearly all of its parts to move—an accurate representation that doubles as a unique piece of art. With excruciating attention to detail, it features all the textures and ridges of a real lobster. This 1.5 pounder will set you back a little more than the real thing, but it's reasonably priced for the craftsmanship, beauty and conversations it will start.

Available at Vivre, $415. This and other creatures from the same line are also available at Nest Interiors in New York City.
