Some express their love for a show or movie by sharing it with others, some draw their favorite characters or write fanfiction, and artist Tim Prince creates intricate sculptures using animal bones. This Facehugger sculpture, titled Parasitoid, is a uniquely beautiful tribute to the Alien franchise made from box turtle, mink, skunk, wild turkey, coyote, and mouse bones. Prince's work includes a number of morbidly beautiful sculptures made from real animal bones, wet specimens, and another stunning tribute piece dedicated to the classic 1986 film Little Shop of Horrors. Provided you're not bothered by the thought of skulls in your living room, Prince's work is also available for purchase on Etsy.
