Shauna Richardson is an artist who has created a pretty unique niche: “crochetdermy.” She creates large-scale sculptures of wild animals entirely by hand. Her biggest project was The Lionheart Project, commissioned for the 2012 London Olympic Games. She created three 25-foot crochet lions, that took her two years to make. They toured across the U.K. in a glass trailer.
Her sculptures feature lifelike poses and expressions.
One of her more unique commissions, a baboon version of Prince Harry.
She makes a lot of mounted animal heads.
Now there’s a hunting trophy I’d actually find cool.
Check out this brown bear.
While she usually focuses on larger animals, she also does smaller critters.
She has also done domestic animals, like this snowy-white bulldog.
And here’s Shauna herself next to one of the massive lions she created for The Lionheart Project.
