The first thing that probably comes to mind when you think about art is your regular paint-to-canvas painting that can be hung on the wall, or placed in some obscure area in your home or office.

Other people may think of a sculpture or figure, but these artists stepped way outside of the box and have used everything from gold and pearls to Louis Vuitton bags and vintage sports jerseys.

We have to admit that most of these pieces of art may not be practical to purchase, display, or even try to recreate, but they are definitely amazing to look at and would draw attention anywhere they were displayed.

After the break, take a look at some of the pieces made from very precious materials.
