Nature: "Don't worry, I got this."
Artist Nikolai Tolstyh describes himself as both an "art lover" and "natural craftsman."
And judging by his inventive work, both of those claims seem to be more than just a little true.
After making detailed cutouts of various animals, Tolstyh then photographs them with different, natural backdrops.
And sometimes, they're absolutely perfect.
What many don't know, is that "paper-cutting" was an art form in China dating all the way back to the 6th century.
It wasn't until the 17th century that it reached European countries.
Now, paper-cutting is making a resurgence as an artistic expression...
Thanks to art-loving, natural craftsmen like Tolstyh, and their beautifully unique work.
