Illustration: Treebeard

Treebeard by Eiko Ojala

Some pieces have more than what is at face value. Treebeard by Eiko Ojala is one of those pieces. At first glance, you see a face, yet there is depth and feeling. On closer inspection, however, there is so much more. The attention to detail is stunning, and the depth of the color that is used is done with amazing quality. Using paper cutouts, this piece makes anything else using that technique look like child’s play. In the end, my favorite part is the eyes. They have a an essence of life that is hard to put into any figure. When placed into this piece, the effect is breathtaking. Regardless of the character reference, this piece has history from technique and artistry.
