A new series of works by artist Hyungkoo Lee called "Animatus" features hand-fabricated skeletons of cartoon characters along with detailed anatomical drawings.

Lee constructs the skeletons using a hybrid mix of real animal bones and synthetic materials.

Yes, I agree. And Lee's skeletons are so amazing because they make it really clear, by basing 'reality' on fiction instead of the other way around.
