Czech designer Monika Horcicova has a thing for human anatomy, namely the skeletal structure. She creates intricate sculptures using 3D-printed bones made out of polyurethane resin. The piece shown above is entitled The Wheel of Life, and according to Designboom, it references the "repeated cycle of conception and death, with walking legs used to evoke the image of people in motion."

Each bone in the sculpture had to be printed then placed in a form for casting, then the artist assembled the pieces using a life-sized map of the design. To see more photos of the process and angles of the finished piece, head over to Designboom and check out Horcicova's website.
