Textile artist Claire Moynihan uses animal proteins (mostly of the ovis aries, aka sheep) to create lifelike models of animal proteins (mostly of insects, with arachnids and mollusks thrown in for good measure).  Her miniature scale felted balls include butterflies, snails, hornets, dragonflies, beetles and bees among others. Via designboom.
