A Savant Sculptor's Amazing Menagerie

Alonzo Clemens creates incredibly accurate animal sculptures out of any clay-like material.  What I find most interesting about this video is that while his animals are anatomically perfect, his human figures are not.  Why, in his mind, are we not like other mammals, forms composed of muscle and bone?  Why can he sculpt horse or cow but not man?  Why does he sculpt animals and not inanimate objects?  And the big question: is this art?
