Lorenzo Duran

I just stumbled upon the work of Lorenzo Duran who creates complex, tiny cutouts on leaves.  His website is in Spanish, but the images really speak for themselves.

 The artist clearly is accomplished in the art of sacred geometry.

This piece is unique in his work in that it is based on random geometry.

This one is so gorgeously complex, he is obviously a master with the blade.

This one is reminiscent of a distant landscape in a Kurosawa film.

This reminds me of the traditional Islamic art of calligraphy on leaves.
These tiny works of art traditionally feature passages from the Qu'ran and are worked in gold leaf on dried leaves

More modern interpretations have introduced colour and illuminated decoration.
