"Wooden Art by Miyakawa Kazumi" (木彩画) - (2010/01)

I recently met Miyakawa Kazumi, an artist who creates amazing pictures with wood. It's impossible to describe other than to show you an example, so here's one (from a promotional postcard I received from the artist):
The different colors and whatnot are created by cutting out pieces of wood and inlaying them one by one. From a distance, you would never imagine how the pictures are made - you have to get very close to see all the intricately placed wood, and then you step back and take another look, thinking "Wow...! Amazing!!"

The artist has a blog here:

One more example (also from a promotional postcard that the artist game me):
