Omid Asadi, an artist from Iran, carefully cuts away naturally fallen leaves into highly realistic scenes. His discovery of this medium began when he noticed that other people casually step on what he regards as naturally beautiful:
I started to think why nobody paid attention to these beautiful leaves and trod on them, because of their name - if they were called flowers we wouldn’t tread on them at all!
He's developed this craft with not only refined, precise detail, but also an imaginative eye for the possibilities of the medium.
