Who doesn’t like looking at cute animals? Ever fell in love with the picture of an adorable white panda? Or a doe? You must have desperately wanted to have those lovable little wild animals in your home, perhaps. But can’t. Well, a Russian artist might have provided you with the best alternative.
Yulia Derevschikova, an artist who hails from Khabarovsk in Russia, specializes in creating felted wool figures. Over the last four years, she has created hundreds of adorable felted wool animal figures –of little rabbits, deer, panda, bear, chipmunks, squirrels and even raccoons. Using the felted wool technique, which adds extra puffiness and texture to the figures, Yulia has created figures so adorably real that you would want them as pets.
