Dalton Ghetti Miniature Pencil Art - WOW

I had to share this - the patience involved, the steady hand, the ability to spend hours sitting and carving a lead pencil - just WOW

I did a little research and found that the person doing these wonderful miniature sculptures is Daton Ghetti, a 49 yo carpenter. What's even more amazing is that he doesn't use any sort of magnification to acheive these results, even after 25 years.

Often these pieces can take years to complete, after all it is only a hobby.

You can see more of his work here Twisted Sifter

I'm in awe of the patience required and the steady hand, I would have neither.

Art when done well is beautiful and for the creator a work of art.
