Amazing art in crochet

What do you crochet? Afghans, dishcloths, doilies, sweaters, shawls...There are plenty of possibilities. The hot thing right now is amigurumi, a Japanese word for small crochet of real items. Animals and movie characters were some of the first projects, but there is such variety. There is a book of amigurumi sci-fi and horror creatures such as zombies, there are cute sushi, and tiny desserts. I've just found a website of very unusual ones, but the design & work are amazing. This site has an Easter Island Head, Tongue Idol, bird totems, spirits.
"Easter Island Head"
Caution: There are human body parts, if you're easily offended, don't look.
Peek at the little birds, instead:
"begging baby bird"
"contented birds"

This site is definitely part of my "Art in crochet", amazing artwork.
