Instagram users over at the Land of the Rising Sun are sharing with us some photos of amazing artworks made with fallen leaves. Yes, you read that right – fallen leaves!
Who would’ve thought that leaves can be a medium for art, right?
Most of us would have simply swept those leaves away and threw them into the dumpsters but apparently, some locals thought they made interesting materials for creating pieces of art.
The Japanese are calling this new trend as “ochiba art” which literally translates to “fallen leaf art” and we’re absolutely mindblown with the stuff they came up with. They’ve gathered and combined leaves of different colors and shapes to produce these “transient masterpieces,” as RocketNews24 describes them.
We really can’t help but admire the patience and attention to details. Go scroll down and see for yourself:
