Animal-Based Masterpieces By Expert Wood Sculptor Rumerio

 In the small northern Italian town of Ortisei resides a woodsmith, one of the few people on this planet who appreciates and skillfully utilizes the different elements of nature. For the past 30 years, Italian artist Guiseppe Rumerio has been building on his passion for this planet and its natural creations in the most intricately designed way. He carefully carves sculptures of animals from wood, creating hyper-realistic scenes and depicting wildlife frozen in its most free state.

Having begun woodworking at the tender age of 14, Rumerio has since developed his technique and earned quite a name for himself as one of the greatest woodworkers in the art community. His fascination with animals leaves him on a constant search for new inspiration, and his pieces continue to astound and amaze art and nature enthusiasts the world over. Just take a look at these 18 stunning sculptures and you’ll know exactly why!
