Artist Brings Stones To Life By Realistically Painting Animals On Them

Akie Nakata is a Japanese "stone artist", as she calls herself. Her canvas is anything but ordinary since she uses stones and realistically paints on them, this way bringing them to life. As Nakata says herself, "When I find a stone, I feel that stone has found me too. Stones have their own intentions, and I consider my encounters with them as cues they give me it’s OK to go ahead and paint what I see on them."

You could finally get a proper pet rock ;-)

Her work is so detailed and realistic it’s impossible not to adore it. According to Nakata, she paints eyes of these animals at the very end, “I consider my work completed only when I see that the eyes are now alive and looking back straight at me. To me, completing a piece of work is not about how much detail I draw, but whether I feel the life in the stone.”
