The human body is such an interesting subject. In fact, it’s already a majestic piece of art on its own. This explains why it’s one of the most common recurring themes in many artists’ work. From illustrations, paintings, sculptures and more, we’ve witnessed a multitude of depictions of it through various art forms. Well, Ukraine-based artist Polina Verbytska adds an eerie twist to this as she portrays the intricacies of the human body as wearable art. Among her oddly stunning pieces include these ear and foot earrings.
One quick look at these pieces is enough to give you chills. For starters, they look like miniature versions of the actual body parts. They’re realistic and anatomically correct, which makes it all the more unsettling to see them as jewelry charms. So, there’s no doubt that they would make the perfect accessories to wear on Halloween and other costume parties. But if you don’t mind getting awkward stares from strangers (or if it’s actually your goal to creep people out), then they’re perfect for everyday wear as well.
