Man, those are amazing. I met a guy in Venice, Italy that did this stuff, and like these in the gallery, I'm incredibly impressed that these are all hand-cut, since it feels like something computer could cut with a laser really well.

Oh, wow, these are gorgeous.

After about six or seven I find myself kinda wanting them to experiment with some different colors and some different levels of detail on the figures, but they're still pretty damn gorgeous all the way down.

Beautiful. I wish someone would photograph and post them in anaglyph 3-D. I get the impression that I'm missing quite a bit without the sense of depth.

Utopia reminds me of Shimla Mirch. Absolutely beautiful.

Any details as to how long they take to create?

Ditto on the gorgeous. It's cool that they posted the unlit and lit images. Amazing how much the lighting really makes the pieces.

This is awesome, and whoever photographed them did a great job as well.

These are gorgeous. Between the depth created by the layers and the tiny scale of the human figures, it feels like you could get lost in them. Just beautiful.
