Montreal-based fashion designer Raku Inoue has been arranging a variety of plant and flowers to create animal sculptures for years now. He used natural materials to form various display of animals and insects then photographed and shared them in his Instagram account.

This time he takes his craft to a more innovative arrangement. In his ongoing Natura series, the artist goes white in his floral creations as he dedicate this to his stepfather who just passed away.

In the series, he uses flower petals, stems and leaves to form tigers, owls, beetles and butterflies, taking advantage of the natural shapes of his raw materials to create these lively illustrations.
