Sergei Bobkov and Wooden Chips

Today I discovered these amazing and unique sculptures by Sergei Bobkov, a school teacher from Russia. He uses wood chips that have been soaked in water for several days and then shapes them into these highly intricate animal sculptures. It's not surprising, it takes painstaking around 12 hours each day for six months to complete one sculpture. He creates the life-sized sculptures as a hobby and he does not sell his magnificient pieces.

"It's not too interesting to do what other can, to create something out of nothing in a completely new way is far more inspiring." says Bobkov.
