The disturbingly beautiful creations belong to Australia-based sculptor, Freya Jobbins, who reportedley gave up on a career in the police force to go to school and learn art. She graduated with a degree in printmaking and sculpting.

The creations are made from hundreds and hundreds of discarded dolls. But why?

"I am interested in generating a range of responses to existing cultural objects, which have been placed out of context," she explained, according to Dangerous Minds. "The irony of my plastic works is that I take a material that was created to be touched, and I make it untouchable as an artwork".

Of course, the fact that such beautiful and thought-provoking work is created from recycled materials is a big plus for Jobbins' art.

It seems a very important part of the process for her....

Not only does the artist solely use recycled, second-hand materials to create the works, but the hair sprouting from the dolls' head that she has no use for is given to a friend to use in her weaving work!
