Paper Art

It's just PAPER - Awesome!

Wonder how this man dreamed up something like this?
I guess he was wondering one day what to do with his spare time, picked up a piece of paper, and started cutting.

He made something pretty and then decided I can make other things just as pretty or even more beautiful.

So he practiced and practiced and got better and better and in time discovered he really had a talent that not many other people have. 
Take the time to look and see what I mean.

By Canadian paper artist,

Calvin Nicholls.

There is nothing simple or ordinary about his paper art.
Where we would simply use a piece of paper and a pair of scissors, Calvin uses everything you could possibly think of to carve, cut and rip perfect details onto his creations.

The motifs are all wildlife, and that must be one of the hardest categories of things to make with paper since there are sometimes impossible details on animals.

These details are amazing!
I can't even fathom the time it must have taken to create these masterpieces of art.

Enchanted River is found in Philippines. It is called “enchanted” because no one has ever reached its bottom. Many people,including scuba divers, have tried reaching for the bottom but have failed, hence the legend of its bottomless pit.Moreover, locals share that NOBODY has been successful in catching the fish in this river, whether by hand or by spear.They say its bluish color is a result of its depth and the water clarity changes throughout the day. At around 12:00 pm,the water becomes clearer and even more majestic.

Christ the Redeemer Statue overlooking the whole of Rio was pretty special. You could see it from everywhere you went.
I also have to say that the majority of the people who lived there, including the 'natives' (especially in the favelas) knew exactly who it was and respected it and what it stands for.

The Astonishing Annual Red Crab Migration
Each year millions of bright red land crabs leave their burrow homes on Australia's Christmas Island and start a long,
laborious trek toward the sea. They descend cliffs, climb banks and maneuver around obstacles to reach the shoreline
and lay their eggs, eventually returning to the island's central plateau with their offspring in tow.
The synchronized migration resembles a crimson-colored river undulating across the island and can last up to 18 days.
The event typically takes place in November or December (the crabs will only move when it's raining) and coincides with the turning of high tide and the arrival of the waning moon.
