These stunning works of art are set to blow people away after a sculptor painstakingly cut shapes out of fallen leaves.

Lorenzo Duran Silva, 43, was inspired to create the delicate work after watching a caterpillar make holes in a leaf by eating it.

He collects foliage in his garden and parks which he then spends weeks transforming into beautiful works of art.

Interesting variation on the art of Scherenschnitte. Must be a pain in the *** though because most leaves are wicked brittle when dry and not much better fresh.

What matters is how much time you're willing to put in.
