Two Artists Create One Miniature Paper Bird Everyday

nvillustration/Instagram

Nayan Shrimali and Vaishali Chudasama, two paper artists from India, have decided to put their skills onto the test once 2017 officially ended. The duo took on the task of creating 365 miniature paper birds, with each one from a different species. And they have the intention to finish their project by the end of this year.

Although it may seem that their miniature creations are easy to make, the truth is that Shrimali and Chudasama work four to six hours on each bird in order get all the details right. But, according to the examples of their work, that time is well spent.

You can check out some of their creations below.

328/365, Number Three Hundred twenty eight from our 365 Days of miniature art ~ Wild Turkey 🦃 …. This big guy is available on our @etsy shop with 10% discount.. the sale lasts till tomorrow.. have a great festive season you all … . . SAVE NATURE SAVE WORLD . . . The wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) is an upland ground bird native to North America and is the heaviest member of the diverse Galliformes. It is the same species as the domestic turkey, which was originally derived from a southern Mexican subspecies of wild turkey (not the related ocellated turkey). Although native to North America, the turkey probably got its name from the domesticated variety being imported to Britain in ships coming from the Levant via Spain. The British at the time therefore associated the wild turkey with the country Turkey and the name prevails. . . . #365dayschallenge #miniature #papercut #paperart #sculpture #paperbird #wildturkey #turkey #christmas #thanksgiving #turkeysofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #tinysculpture #birdsculpture #MyEtsyFind #dailymini #artistofinstagram #birdsofinstagram #birdstagram #artoftheday #dailydrawing #birdart #nvillustration #etsy #365feathersproject @instagram @etsy @natgeo @birds.nature @nature @wildlifeplanet @winsorandnewton @instagramforbusiness @fubiz @designboom @designmilk

330/365, Number Three Hundred thirty from our 365 Days of miniature art ~ Laughing Kookaburra and Blue-winged Kookaburra …. . . SAVE NATURE SAVE WORLD . . . Kookaburras are terrestrial tree kingfishers of the genus Dacelo native to Australia and New Guinea, which grow to between 28–42 cm (11–17 in) in length. The name is a loanword from Wiradjuri guuguubarra, onomatopoeic of its call. The loud distinctive call of the laughing kookaburra is widely used as a stock sound effect in situations that involve an Australian bush setting. . . . #365dayschallenge #miniature #papercut #paperart #sculpture #paperbird #bluewingedkookaburra #laughingkookaburras #kookaburra #kingfisher #treekingfisher #artistsoninstagram #tinysculpture #birdsculpture #MyEtsyFind #dailymini #artistofinstagram #birdsofinstagram #birdstagram #artoftheday #dailydrawing #birdart #nvillustration #etsy #365feathersproject @instagram @etsy @natgeo @birds.nature @nature @wildlifeplanet @winsorandnewton @instagramforbusiness @fubiz @designboom @designmilk

243/365, Number Two Hundred forty three from our 365 days of miniature rt ~ Baltimore Oriole … . . SAVE NATURE SAVE WORLD . . The Baltimore oriole (Icterus galbula) is a small icterid blackbird common in eastern North America as a migratory breeding bird. It received its name from the resemblance of the male's colors to those on the coat-of-arms of Lord Baltimore. Observations of interbreeding between the Baltimore oriole and the western Bullock's oriole, Icterus bullockii, led to both being classified as a single species, called the northern oriole, from 1973 to 1995. Research by James Rising, a professor of zoology at the University of Toronto, and others showed that the two birds actually did not interbreed significantly. . . . . #365dayschallenge #miniature #papercut #paperart #sculpture #paperbird #baltimoreoriole #lordbaltimore #northernoriole #americanbirdconservancy #birdie #orangebird #birdsculpture #MyEtsyFind #birdfeeder #artistofinstagram #birdsofinstagram #birdstagram #artistsoninstagram #artoftheday #dailydrawing #birdart #nvillustration #etsy #365feathersproject @natgeoindia @instagram @winsorandnewton @instagramforbusiness @excelblades @birds.nature @lgenpaper @natgeo @etsy @strictlypaperart @boredpanda
