In the mood for flowers, but find the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2012 a little too mainstream?
Perhaps conceptual art book Not A Rose will float your petal boat.
At first glance, these images of flowers may appear traditional - but look harder and you’ll see they're a little different.
According to German artist Heide Hatry’s website, these are not innocent pretty flowers - but elegant, compelling, and yet grotesque sculptures created from the offal, sex organs, and other parts of animals.
On a mission to remind readers that flowers are really “the detached dead sex organs of living beings” Hatry's collection of exotic flowers is made entirely from meat.
"In Not a Rose you will experience contemporary art at its best: it is thinking through art," Hatry explains.
