If you think you’re good at working with wood, prepare for complete artist envy. These amazing animal designs have been meticulously crafted from wood shavings by Sergei Bobkov, from Siberia. The fur, feathers and whiskers of the animals are all true to form and from what we can tell from the Russian translations, have taken many, many hours to carve and shape – not to mention the time spent removing splinters! That’s what we call dedication.
