Pencils: Mini Sculptures

Just discovered these fantastic photos on Telegraph.co.uk - artist Dalton Ghetti creates miniature masterpieces carved from pencil tips, using only a sewing needle, razor blade and sculpting knife.  Ghetti is a carpenter and has been making his tiny graphite carved sculptures for about 25 years. 

The alphabet, all carved from 26 pencil tips

He must be an incredibly patient man, with an incredibly still hand. Beautiful.

I also saw those amazing photos on a website (BBC I think.) He must have good eyesight too.
