Peach Pit Carving



Peach pit carving. Did you guys know about this? I didn't. I first learnt about the fruit pit carving on the blog called Spike is Best of Paul Stilwell. I searched on Google and found out that the pit carving has been around for  centuries originally introduced in China. It is the traditional handicraft and popular art form of China which needs some fruit pits and lots of carving skills. The pits from of the juicy fruits like peach, apricot, olive or walnuts are used to carve with intricate and detail art. 

Paul carved these two owls and tree on peach pits using xacto knife and sand paper! You can read more on the process on his blog.
