These Photos of Animals Doing Human Things Are Strange But Awesome

Food stylist Claudia Ficca and photographer Davide Luciano created an interesting photo series together entitled "Cold Feet" that is both creepy and kind of cool. The photos feature various real animal limbs in anthropomorphic scenarios, from a pig holding a cigar to chickens getting manicures. According to Daily Mail, the series was conceived when Ficca made a comment about wanting to paint the pretty chicken nails.

If human limbs were placed in these exact scenes, the series would be boring, despite the awesome photography. Knowing that the animals are dead and seeing the way that they are staged gives us chills, but we can't stop looking. The lobster and crab are ok, but the fleshy bits of the pig and chicken are what do it for us.
