These amazing sculptures carved from pencil lead by Russian artist Salavat Fidai. The artist has used an X-ACTO knife to carve miniature renderings of hands, buildings, and various characters from pop culture.

Watch the timelapse below to see his process for carving an entire replica of the Eiffel Tower.

You can follow Fidai on Instagram, and some of his pieces occasionally end up in his shop.
