The Level Of Detail On This Miniature Railroad System Carved Out Of a Pencil Is Crazy
Cindy Chinn, is as she explains herself, a "full-time Artist and when I create artwork, I am reminded how lucky I am to have the freedom to do I as choose." Her most recent work of art is a train that's only 3/16 of an inch tall carved out of lead and in the middle of a pencil that's 5-5/8? long and mounted in a wood shadowbox frame. The end result is far more than just a few pencil shavings, but instead a truly masterful work of art.
Okay, sorry–my childhood imagination just came out there for a second. I was playing pretend and thinking of this beautiful work of art as a Speed scenario, and it was actually quite fun. Thanks for indulging.
It was formerly on sale for $400, but Chinn's website now says it has been sold. However, she does say she's willing to create you your very own piece similar to what you've seen here, so just contact her if that sounds like something you'd be interested in. Especially if you're like me and enjoy playing pretend and bracing yourself for impact until that fateful moment Keanu shows up to save the day.
Do so if you just enjoy wonderful works of art, which this is.
