A Miniature Landscape of Elephants Carved From the Tip of a Pencil by Cindy Chinn

Artist Cindy Chinn recently created a commissioned work for the California-based Epiphany Elephant Museum, a miniature graphite carving of a family of elephants. The piece, titled “Elephant Walk,” features the animals on the tip of a carpenter’s pencil alongside trees that are dotted to imitate foliage. To accurately carve the minuscule materials, Chinn utilizes a magnifying lamp and trinocular microscope. If you are interested in commissioning a piece, or would like to see her other carvings, she has works for sale on her Etsy store.

You can see more images of her miniature carved works on her Facebook, blog, and website. (via Twisted Sifter)
