Astounding Animal Sculptures Made From Cut Layers of Paper
With an experience of over 20 years in paper sculptures, Canadian artist Calvin Nicholls transforms ordinary sheets of paper into incredibly detailed 3D animal sculptures.
To create this delicate multi-layered paper sculptures, Nicholls uses a drawing as a pattern for the various components. Using an X-ACTO knife, scalpels, and scissors, he carefully cuts pieces of paper and glues them in place.
Each piece can take anywhere from a few weeks up to two years to be completed, depending on scale and complexity.
You can see hundreds of additional pieces on Nicholls’s website.
