So, as a member of Deviant Art, I get to see a LOT of amazing artists.  The latest person who rocked my world is a guy named Marcus in Germany-- he carves pagan-inspired things into avocado pits.  And he does it WELL. I recently commissioned a piece from him for my altar, a little Sequana, and it just got to me. Holy smokes, but it's just gorgeous. So small, and yet SO MUCH DETAIL.

Have a look:



The photo doesn't do it justice, so go to:

http://avocadoart.deviantart.com/ and hit the "browse gallery" button to see his stuff. It's really, really gorgeous and inspiring!!

That is just amazing!  His work is breathtaking.  Is the material coated in any way to protect it from the elements?  It would be a shame to see such awesome work get damaged.

I don't know what he does to coat it. He did tell me that the pit will "sweat wax" now and again, so I have to keep an eye out for little white bits to wipe out...

The cool thing is that he's very down to earth... a must for me when it comes to amazing artists like him.

Wow, so cool. I'm always tickled to see what people can come up with using the oddest of medium.
