masayoshi matsumoto’s personal zoo

Japanese artist Masayoshi Matsumoto has recreated practically the entire animal kingdom in balloon form. Sure, we’ve all seen the giraffe at the birthday party trick – and some of you lucky ones may have even had the pleasure of witnessing the creation of other balloon figures, such as the dog or the horse. But Masayoshi has managed to shape recreations of termites, jellyfish – even the flea gets a look in! Oh, and most impressively of all, each balloon sculpture precisely mirrors the real-life animal it represents. Cool, huh?
