Amazing Wood Carvings – Man Even Refuses to Sell these Sculptures






Wood carvings aren’t a new style of art or sculpture. However, what artist Sergei Bobkov makes is. Sergei is a 53 year-old sculptor that creates the incredible out of what most pople would consider trash. He uses wood chips (specifically Siberian Cedar) to build beautiful and intricate sculptures. “It’s not very interesting to do what others can. To create something out of nothing in a completely new way is far more inspiring.”

The cedar chips are very delicate and small.
