Striking life-like insects made from bamboo by Noriyuki Saitoh

Japanese Shizuoka-based artist Noriyuki Saitoh crafts impressive replicas of insects shaping chips and slats of bamboo. Every piece is so perfect made that it’s hard to believe it’s not real.

“Since we are not preparing specimens and replicas, we strictly measure the [overall] dimensions and prioritize the appearance, impressions, features, and senses rather than proportions being created exactly… reality as a work is born if you thin out the elements and leave room to imagine.”
