How gorgeous are these paper hummingbirds by artist Cheong-ah Hwang! Besides depicting one of my favorite subjects, these little sculptures in relief are so intricate, and achieve so much depth that really take on the appearance of a three-dimensional hummingbird. I love the way she feathers the paper to create the hummingbird's wings, it makes the whole object look so light and graceful, just like a hummingbird in mid flight.
