Etsy Find of the Day: Paper Skylines

With a background in art and architecture, Brisbane, Australia-based Etsy seller Kolya works by hand "to reduce a city to almost nothing, to render the landscape in two dimensions, to see the world in a sheet of paper ... to see the humanity in everything."

The result: intricately beautiful city skylines (such as Paris, top, London, above, and New York, below). Carved with a surgical scalpel from card stock or paper money, these 3D paper sculptures are strikingly simple but breathtakingly precise.

Each cityscape costs $60 and is produced in a limited edition of ten and signed and numbered by the artist. A few others that caught my eye:


Hong Kong


Paris en Papier, $30, featuring the Arc de Triomphe cut from a Parisian art card

International Real, $52, a piece of the Manhattan skyline cut from a Brazilian 2 Real note
