Astoundingly Intricate Lead Sculptures Carved From Pencils

A Hungarian artist, who is known as cerkahegyzo, creates unbelievably intricate miniature sculptures that are carved out of lead pencils.

Using ordinary wooden pencils as his medium, he transforms their fragile lead core into wonderful carvings of chains with beautiful link patterns, double helix spirals, old-fashion keys and even animals.

To make his work even more fascinating, many of his sculptures have been carved out of a single pencil.

Head over to the artist’s deviantART page for more of his amazing lead pencil sculptures.
