No, this isn't the work of some gigantic bird. The living art you see before you was actually done by man - more specifically, artist and branchbender extraordinaire Patrick Dougherty. Crafting human-sized nest houses made by actually weaving growing trees into the shapes of houses, cocoons, pagodas, huts, giant water pitchers and even people, Dougherty has traveled the world with his truly extraordinary sculptures.

This one, dubbed "Call of the Wild" has a surrealist feeling to it. Kinda makes you thirsty, no?

Who says living art has to reside outside? This one, called "Crossing Over" made its home inside the American Craft Museum.
