Filigree works Vietnamese artist Ben Tre cannot be confused with anything: the master skillfully carves beautiful patterns on a thin eggshell. Many hours of painstaking work bears fruit: gorgeous portraits and picturesque landscapes emerge from the master's drill. Complemented with lighting and housed in special glass flasks, these carved eggs are used as original table lamps.
The art of eggshell carving is well known to readers of the site Kulturologiya.Ru. Chinese artists Wen Fuliang and Pu Derong and our compatriot Maria Minsitova can be called real gurus in this difficult matter. Ben Tre is not inferior to them in skill, despite the fact that he began to get involved in carving relatively recently, just a year ago.
To achieve this amazing effect, Ben Tre tried different instruments, but the most suitable was a small electric drill borrowed from a dentist friend. It takes Ben Tre one working day to create each drawing, and enjoys carving both celebrity portraits and traditional Vietnamese landscapes. In particular, in his collection you can see a portrait of Albert Einstein and the legendary Mona Lisa.
Amazingly, Ben Tre does not treat the eggshell with any special substances, so it remains very fragile. To preserve these tiny masterpieces, the master places them in special glass balls with a wooden stand, and the illumination makes the drawings carved on the shell even more expressive.
