July 17, 2011 Leaf Cutting
"The cuts and edges looked so accurate that I was sceptical they were made on real leaves. Well, they are. Spanish artist Lorenzo Duran cuts them using an ancient Chinese paper cutting technique. Before he cuts the leaves, he dryes and molds them so that they preserve their shapes for good. "

I'm glad he's preserving them for good, and not for evil.

Wow - I haven't the vision, with or without glasses, to even imagine cutting something like that. Very nice.

Oh, I can see it, I just don't have anywhere near that steady a hand.

The really hard part is explaining to the trained caterpillars which picture you want every time.

His hand slipped as he was doing the deer, and tree 5 of 7 was felled. Doh! (A deer, etc)

I am stag-ered by your wit.
