    Amazing Chinese TINY peach pit carving, little boat with shutters that open and close. Not a dollhouse miniature, but isn't it incredible? :) Peach stones are most commonly used for carving. Other fruit pits used include apricot stones and olive stones It requires a highly skilled carver and special tools to create a beautiful end product.

Carved from a book!? -Incredible art painstakingly crafted from old books by Brian Dettmer, aka the Book Surgeon.

Attribution for these astonishing works has been lost in the compilation process. First, international currency symbols by Diem Chau. (tinyhaus.blogspot...) Second, crayons carved into the 12 symbols of the Chinese zodiac, also by Diem Chau. (boingboing.net/...) Third, ten works by Pete Goldlust. (www.petegoldlust....)

These look like they could be nesuke. Peach is associated with escape, in Chinese culture, so peach pit carvings are widely used as pendants or on as a string of beads to ward of evil and avoid misfortunes.
