Leaf Carving

Leaf carving involves cutting away at a leaf until it reveals an image. This is a craft practiced by Nature's Art, a studio in Hengshui, China. At the link, you can view several other examples as well as instructions on how to make your own.

It looks like paint, due to the speckled fading out. But when I looked it up I found very similar images with shadows that probably prove that it is actually carved.
In which case, it is really cool.

It's easy.

Seriously: it looks nice and all, but it's not carving; it's painting.

The leaf is not cut out... If you can't notice that the leaf is actually painted with white paint. You put a stencil on the leaf, and paint. Look close next time.
