What This Girl Did With A Box Of Crayons Is Amazing. It Must’ve Taken Forever… But So Worth It.

Sculpture is an impressive form of visual art. It’s a common belief that the biggest or the busiest sculptures are the best.

However, that’s not necessarily true. Small, or even tiny, sculptures can be just as impressive. For example, Seattle-based artist Diem Chau is obsessed with tiny things and her micro sculptures are so impressive, all because of their size.
Diem carves these sculptures into a medium we’re all familiar with… a favorite childhood toy. Check out her series called “A-Z: Northwest Natives.”

Diem’s A-Z: Northwest Natives were made just using a box of crayons and her incredible talent..
