Italian still life photographer Guido Mocafico shot these hyper-realistic glass models of marine invertebrates in a photographic series he called “Blaschka.” The original models were painstakingly crafted by a father-and-son glassmaker team, Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka, and are part of the permanent collection of several museums—including ones at Harvard and Cornell University. Take a look at some of the Mocafico’s series below.
