Stunning Art Made of Real Human Bones

This is the strangest art that I'v ever seen before, made from a real human bones. It's really stunning and breathing. 

The human skeleton consists of both fused and individual bones supported and supplemented by ligaments, tendons,muscles and cartilage. It serves as a scaffold which supports organs, anchors muscles, and protects organs such as the brain, lungs and heart. The biggest bone in the body is the femur in the thigh and the smallest is the stapes bone in the middle ear. In an adult, the skeleton comprises around 30-40% of the total body weight, and half of this weight is water.

 There are over 206 bones in the adult human skeleton, a number which varies between individuals and with age - newborn babies have over 270 bones
