Living sculptures, as these beauties from Opiary are known, look like something you might find in a high-end museum or a William Randolph Hearst exhibit. USA-made and created with galvanized steel and resin-fortified cement, these pieces are polished to their smooth finish by artisans. Truly, they are works of art. But are they too risqué?

Well, no. Art is art, and not all of these sculptures feature detailed curves of the human form.

The sculptures range in price anywhere from to $800 for the 22-inch Trophy sculpture to a cool $16,400 for the 45-inch Apollo sculpture. Other designs include a Bucephalus bust ($12,000), a smiling dog ($4,800) and a lounging Mother Nature Solitaire ($15,600). All pieces, of course, are intended for greenery and include crevices and spaces to allow them to flourish and grow.
