Bovey Lee, a Hong Kong born artist and currently based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has been playing around with thinly delicate rice papers since 2005 — painstakingly hand-cutting them into amazingly complex artistic scenery. The fine details of the scenes from simple grassland to intricate patterns of blooming flowers, crisscrossing roads, buildings, people, animals, objects, among others — are simply Mesmerizing! Her artwork is truly remarkable!
