Leaf Beasts: Simple Animal Sculptures Cut from Dried Magnolia Leaves

Leaf Beast is a recent project by freelance illustrator and artist Baku Maeda that seemingly brings dead leaves back to life. Maeda took advantage of the warped shape and veiny structure of dried magnolia leaves and made only minimal cuts to create each piece. See Part I and Part II.
