These magnificent pencil sculptures are made by a Russian artist Salavat Fidai. Two years ago, he quit his high-paying executive job and became a freelance artist.  His journey begun as a creative experiment and has grown into a large signature project “Carved pencils” that became popular around the world.

Fidai says “It takes six to 12 hours of work for an average statue. Complicated models take two to three days, in some cases [I even use] a microscope for the tiniest details.”

I remember once being amazed at those vendors at the mall who write your name on a grain of rice. But those guys have nothing on Fidai.

As soon as you see his work, you’ll see why.
