This Artist Creates Insanely Detailed Animal Paper Sculptures

This Canadian artist from Toronto can creates unimaginably detailed masterpieces made entirely out of paper. Paper artist Calvin Nicholls meticulous masterpieces looks like awesome animal carvings but actually are multi-layered paper sculptures that appear to break free from his matboard.
To accomplish the haut-relief impact, Nicholls first works from a drawing which he utilizes as a format for the different paper components. With A X-ACTO blade, scalpels and scissors he cuts the paper in different small shapes and glues them in place. He spends on a piece, depending on its complexity and scale, from 4 weeks to 2 years.
