51-year-old German artist Ragna Reusch-Klinkenberg is an expert at carving minuscule figures out of toothpicks and pencil tips that are so tiny to the extent that you need a magnifying glass to actually see them properly! OddityCentral has more:

Ragna, who holds a degree in graphic design, says her real passion lies in working with wood. She’s been passionate about carving since her childhood. She started carving erasers at school using small forks and later moved on to carving wooden clothespins and selling the miniatures she made at craft markets. “Once I had forgotten my clothespin blanks, but I found a toothpick in my pocket,” she recalled. So she tried working with it, and fell in love right away.

Ragna uses a knife with a tiny blade to create her extraordinary toothpick carvings. Surprisingly, she doesn’t need a magnifying glass – she’s able to work with only her reading glasses. Once the carving is ready, she paints the figure with a very thin brush. “For me, this is like knitting,” she admitted. “I have just as shaky hands as everyone else.”
