The UFa-based artist Salavat Fidai starts with thick leaded pencils, then he uses an X-ACTO knife to carve miniature replicas of  buildings, hands and various characters from pop culture.

Fidai is fascinated by all things miniature, and also paints on seeds and matchboxes. Watch the time lapse below to see his entire process for carving a replica of the Eiffel Tower.
