Makers from around the world have harnessed the perfect combination of wood and resin to create stunning works of art. Ukraine-based artist Yurii Myketka, aka Woodwhale Lab, specializes in applying this mixture to aesthetically pleasing animal sculptures.

With their minimalist bodies and polished details, these miniature figurines are visually striking. Myketka creates these appealing designs by alternating the placement of wood and resin in the sculpture, using bold jewel-toned colors, and simplifying the forms of animals into the most essential features. As a result, his menagerie is both charmingly endearing as well as beautiful.

From penguins to foxes to small birds, Myketka captures a range of animal creatures with his distinct style. Sometimes he purposefully creates mirrored pairs that share complementary features, while other pieces are presented individually as solitary figurines. Every piece, however, possesses the essence of its real-life inspiration.
