Some art is extraordinarily delicate work, and it's rare to see a form as delicate as that done with these leaves. The work by Nature's Art is amazing -- it is a 6-step process to manually remove a leaf's surface to produce a scene. You can just imagine how steady an artist's hands have to be to accomplish this kind of work.

Nature's Art most often uses a Chinar leaf, a tree native to India, Pakistan and China, according to the website. The leaves are washed and then boiled until they're pliant enough to spread across a board. It is then carved, pressed, dried and framed.

Phenomenal work -- and something a TreeHugger can particularly appreciate!
