Experimental Artist Salavat Fidai Carves Mini-Masterpieces into Pencil Lead

By Kendra Zager

Russian artist Salavat Fidai carves incredible micro-sculptures into the lead of pencils. Using an X-Acto knife, Fidai hand-carves these mini-masterpieces on the tip of his finger. It’s hard to imagine how anyone could achieve such detail. For proof of his amazing talent, check out the videos on his website here. Classical paintings and photographs appear on his site as well but the intricate replicas of Darth Vader & the Eiffel Tower on pencil lead are the mind-blowing main attractions.
