4328Check out this amazing yak made by a team of artists for the Icelandic songstress Bjork.

“It was no easy feat to create the yak. Inside, it fits three people and hand-operated mechanical pull devices that control the movements of the eyes, tongue, and other parts. The team used found materials — including moss from Björk’s country home upstate, and shaved wool, which was glued to foam pieces — to give the coat an organic quality.”                                    – New York Sun

You can see the yak in action in Björk’s music video of Wanderlust.
