I Hand-Carve Feathers Into Intricate Designs Using Scalpels And Eye Surgery Scissors (30 New Pics)

I carve birds’ feathers into intricate art in order to make their natural beauty more noticeable. The work highlights the patterns and colors of the feathers themselves, inviting the viewer to look and look again. For me, feathers represent flight, transformation, and a bridge between our present lives and our dreams.

I display my work in shadow boxes, a signature art form I developed after years of research. I use eye surgery scissors, forceps, and scalpels to carve the feathers.

A conservationist at heart, the feathers I use are legally obtained. Many of the feathers are naturally shed, which means that the birds they came from are likely still alive.

Since feathers are universal symbols of flight, transformation, achievement, and hope, the art speaks to many people who long for these qualities as well as people who revere birds.

My work is included in private collections and featured in publications in North America, Asia, Europe, and Australia. My book, Feathers, Form & Function, highlights the art and tells stories about what feathers are, what roles they fill for birds, and why people find them alluring.

We long to fly but cannot so birds and feathers are important symbols representing our longings.

An Incredible Bridge Has Been Opened In Vietnam And It Looks Like It’s Straight Out Of The Lord Of The Rings

Something amazing has recently been built near Da Nang, Vietnam – the incredible Golden Bridge. Standing at 1,400m above sea level and overlooking the Ba Na Hills, this bridge looks like it’s straight out of The Lord Of The Rings.

The giant stone hands hold up a 150m long walkway lined with beautiful purple chrysanthemums and offer a breathtaking view. The design was created by a company called TA Landscape Architecture. At first glance, one might think the hands are made of stone, but they are in fact not: “We designed the skeleton of the hands and covered them with steel meshes,” told a representative of the company in an interview with Bored Panda, “Then we finished with fiberglass and added the theming on it.” The company says it took them about a year to build the majestic bridge.

The bridge is a part of a $2 billion investment, aiming to attract more tourists to the area. Check out the pictures of this amazing bridge in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured – “I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?” – and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that’s trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that’s too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!
