Lifelike Insects Expertly Crafted out of Bamboo Wood

While most people don’t like insects, it is hard not to be impressed by the work of Noriyuki Saitoh.

This Japanese artist creates incredibly lifelike insect models made completely out of bamboo wood. Besides making impressive models using his expert craft, Saitoh also pairs his bamboo insects with props like honeycombs or sticks, which makes them look like they were frozen in time and waiting for the right moment to continue their flight.
