Incredible Wooden Chip Artwork by Sergey Bobkov
Without reading our title, can you guess what these animal sculptures are made of? Look at those furry-looking animal sculptures, it is still hard for us to believe they are actually made of Wooden Chip. Created by Artist Sergey Bobkov, 54, he made below life-sized sculptures from cutting chips from the Siberian cedar for an exhibition of his works in a local school at Kozhany, southwest of Krasnoyarsk.
The inspiration behind these incredible sculptures for Sergey Bobkov is to create something out of nothing in a completely new way. To create those artwork, Bobkov has developed his very own technique, that prevents wood-chips from falling apart, in time. After creating about 100-150 chips, from 2-3 inch long cedar stick, he puts them in water for several days. Then, making use of his surgical precision, he carves the chips into any shape he needs, life-size sables, squirrels, owls and so on. [source],[source]
