Pencil art

One of the reasons why postcrossing is amazing!

US-3890452, from Tim. This is one of the best cards I got. It is “Boot” from Dalton M. Ghetti. That’s a boot carved out of the actual graphite of a carpenter’s pencil tip, using only a jeweler’s file, razor blade and a sewing needle, without the use of a magnifying glass. The piece took approximately 1 1/2 years to complete. It was finished in April 1996.

I love it so much! Thank you Tim!
