Bea Haines, 30, is an artist who works with a unique medium. Her parents worked for Madame Trousseau’s Wax Museum, which features wax sculptures of famous people. This inspired her fascination with human anatomy.

She has used various remains, both human and animal, to make these interesting sculptures. She said:

“It wasn’t the first time a late family member has been featured in my work. Previously, I’d used my grandmother’s gallstones to make prints with. They were pearl-like rocks the size of a pea, my mum kept them after she died, so, taking them to college, I put on some surgical gloves, coated them in a thin layer of gold and stuck them under a scanning microscope. I’ve heard stories of surgeons making bracelets out of them for their wives.”

She has made art with ashes, gallstones, and many other body parts. She took a very clinical approach to the process. She’s not the only one. Some people have been having diamonds made with a loved one’s ashes.

Here are some examples of her work:
