From a distance, this bird might look real. But paper artist Lisa Lloyd cut layers of multicolored paper to build this delicate sculpture.

The British artist started her career in animation and graphic design, and her paper sculptures require a similar eye for precision. She studied many photos of birds in flight to understand how to sculpt the intricate body and wings. Lloyd, who is inspired by patterns in nature, says, “I love color, geometry, and texture. I love detail.”
