Japanese Art Students Go Fantastically Wacky with Giant Wool Cat Head

Now here's something you don't see every day. Needle-felting expert Housetsu Sato and his students at the Japan School of Wool Art recently stitched together an incredibly realistic-looking giant cat head out of sheep's wool felt. The fantastically wacky creation, which can be worn on the head like a mask, was made as a project for the only class in the world that specializes in cat needle-felting.

Sato and his students modeled the result of their hard work in a series of wonderfully bizarre photos that has been gaining well-deserved attention on the web. The marvelous cat head, which looks so lifelike it might as well have been Photoshopped, transforms regular people into zany human-feline hybrids that are both startling and amusing to behold.

The unique creation will be on display at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum from April 18-23, 2015. According to the talented artists, more giant cat heads may be available for rental or sale after the exhibition.
