We have frequently reported about eco artists who make use of recycled materials, preferably metal and wood, to create intricate sculptures that impress one and all. If you think carving out a design on wood is the most difficult form of art, Chinese artist Wen Fuliang will make you think again. Laid off from his job as a wood carver, the artists from China’s Shaanxi province turned to egg shells to produce intricate sculptures by hand.
The artist makes use of chicken, goose and duck eggshells to carve places of interest. Each egg is previously emptied of yolk and egg white with a syringe after which the real task begins. Using a pencil to draw the exact carving that has to be done, the artist makes use of a fine diamond bit on an electric rotary tool. While the end result is admirable, the process is too difficult, considering the fact that even the slightest mistake can ruin the entire sculpture in a matter of a few milliseconds.
