As Well As 365 Days,

in a year,

 in this year there will be 365 different birds,

 that is the task set by India-based cut paper artists Nayan Shrimali and Vaishali Chudasama,

 the pair have set out to construct 365 miniature bird species by the end of 2018,

 going through the whole gambit of bird species,

to form each work, the pair begins by cutting feathers, beaks, and talons from layers of paper and then using watercolor to produce further detail,

 despite the works’ small size (some of the tiniest pieces measuring only 3/4 of an inch from head to tail), each bird takes four to six hours to finish depending on the extent of the bird’s colorful plumage,

 You can stay updated with the artists’ miniature project on Instagram

 and buy tiny avian artworks by the duo on their Etsy Shop,

 and no I am not on commission!

I just marvel at the amount of work that goes into producing just one of these pieces of avarian art.
