Detailed Miniature Sculptures Carved into the Graphite of Pencil Tips

Transforming ordinary objects into something new and unexpected, Russian artist Salvat Fidai, creates incredibly detailed graphite sculptures out of the fragile tips of pencils. His miniature carvings range from incredibly realistic portraits to tiny hands communicating emblematic gestures such as the peace sign and the raised fist. Fidai doesn’t limit his miniature artwork to pencils, he also recreates master paintings on pumpkin seeds and matchboxes.
