Sculpture of mum & daughter carved into tip of a PENCIL goes on display

A SCULPTURE of a mum and daughter carved into the tip of a pencil is one of the star attractions at a miniature art festival.

Bosnian artist Jasenko Dordevic, who posts his pencil creations on Instagram, is one of 30 artists showing 130 works.

Miniature art dates back to Egyptian times.

Exhibition director Serge Victoria said: “One of the main purposes of the show is to be able to give the public the chance to discover miniature art in real life.

“There is a difference between looking at an Instagram post and getting ‘inside the screen’ and seeing the work up close and personal.”

The Small is Beautiful: Miniature Art Exhibition opens on April 15 in South Kensington, West London.
