Noriyuki Saitoh creates these delightful life-sized insects from carved bamboo.
While the artist strictly measures the dimensions, he takes some artistic license:
[We] prioritize the appearance impressions, features, and senses rather than proportions being created exactly. People's eyes appreciate small works. We compensate gaps and colors of genuine and works with knowledge, experience, and imagination. I think that it is fun to appreciate this bamboo work.
