The Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori creates scultures of goldfish, layer by layer, out of paint and resin. He pours a layer of resin, paints a slice of the goldfish on it, and repeats the process until he has a 3D sculpture/painting. A most remarkable process.

There are more pictures at Dominic Alve's flickr stream, where I found these examples. I found his work via Colossal's post Riusuke Fukahori Paints Three-Dimensional Goldfish Embedded in Layers of Resin, which also has a video of Fukahori working.
