Amazing Wood Carving

Artist Sergei Bobkov, 54, installs a sculpture of two life-sized martens made from cutting chips from the Siberian cedar at an exhibition of his works in a local school in the settlement of Kozhany, 207 km (129 miles) southwest of Krasnoyarsk, September 5, 2011. Bobkov, who received a patent on manufacturing art sculptures made of cutting chips, spent eight months creating the two martens, using about 150 thousand pieces of Siberian cedar.
