Insect-Mollusk Hybrids Are Horrifying, Yet Beautiful

I’m not the biggest bug person and I’m not the biggest mollusk person; but I must say, these imaginary insect-mollusk hybrids have a certain air of beauty about them. Finland-based artist, Vladimir Stankovic, painted a number of species in the “newly discovered” order known as Cephalopodoptera. All the images are animated GIFs on Stankovic’s Bēhance page, adding to their strange beauty. We have a full gallery of these strange creatures after the jump for you to enjoy.

See the animated versions here. Vladimir Stankovic’s site can be found here and his Bēhance page can be found here. Enjoy his amazing work down below!
