Wooden Chip Artist

The bird seems frozen. The wings are spread wide. Looking so alive, it seems almost unbelievable that it is made of cembra pine wood chips. Artist Sergey Bobkov spent half a year to produce this wonderful eagle, working with practically no days off, 10 to 12 (and sometimes even 14) hours a day. No wonder! It took about 7 thousand feathers to make the plumage! But it is definitely worth it – the result does not differ much from its living prototype. Artist’s collection consists of all kinds of birds and animals: life-size sables, squirrels, owls and so on.

Before making a new “pet” Sergey Bobkov carefully studies its anatomy, habits and anything else that can help him better understand the chosen creature. And the technology itself is his invention.

“It’s not too interesting to do what others can," the artist says. “To create something out of nothing in a completely new way is far more inspiring".

    Yeah, he could make some serious money if he sold his art…

    So taking the information on how long it took him to do the eagle, say that you paid the artist $9.00 an hour to do an eagle for you. So he works for 12 hours a day for six months, that would be $19,710 in labor costs alone! No thanks – they are really nice, but not that nice.

    For him it must truly be a labor of love.

    I carve for a hobby and have made some interesting items. I have been working for years (off and on)trying to perfect hair on animals and have been close but nothing like this artist. Very nice work and it is to be admired, not only for the art but for the time envolved. The time seems endless but the artist usually doesn’t notice because of the realization of his creation.
