Amazing Leaf Cutting Artwork...!

Now that it's that time of year again where we trade in our lawn sprinkers with lawn racks... for all those darn leaves... I figured this post was appropriate.
Well, instead of getting depressed, get inspired by these amazing leaf carving/illustrations by Nature's Art
The process of carving is performed by artists using tools to carefully remove the surface without cutting or removing the veins. The veins add detail into the subject matter of the carving. The material or most common leaf used in leaf carving is the leaf of a Chinar tree. The Chinar tree is native to India, Pakistan and China. Chinar leaves have a close resemblance to maple leaves.
