Carved Lobster

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.
