LEAF CUTTINGS – WOW!‏

Delicate Leaf Cuttings By Omid  Asadi
My name is Omid Asadi and I currently live in Manchester, United Kingdom. I created this work with carving and cutting techniques on actual fallen leaves using a craft knife and a needle. I always try to create pieces with a message, not just beautiful art. Some of these messages or ideas come from my world view, poems, stories, global problems and philosophy. I’m also inspired by other artists’ and designers’ works.

Leaf’s Mind
LEAF CUTTINGS - WOW!‏001
I’m very attentive to beautiful fallen leaves. Suddenly,
I started SEEING them, not simply looking at them.

Carriage
LEAF CUTTINGS - WOW!‏002
I believe that we look at many things everyday, but don’t SEE them.
For example, apples had been falling from trees for thousands of years,
but only Isaac Newton truly saw that and, thanks to him,
our lives have changed forever.

Once I visited a paper cutting exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery;
that was when I noticed the leaves as well.

I mostly use maple leaves because, in the area I live, I can find them easily.

Eagle

I use a craft knife or scalpel and needle. It is not like a paper cutting because each part needs a certain pressure to cut. If I make a mistake, I destroy maybe hundreds of hours of work.

For me these leaves represent our life, which is too short. I’m trying to give them another life.

I remember when I was a little kid, I used to draw on
the back of rose petals and leaves with a needle.

I created this work to support the Persian Cheetah,
which is a species that is at risk of becoming extinct.

I have received loads of positive feedback from the public and media, and I am glad
people like my works and enjoy them. This shows how we can create beauty, love and
make this world better for all of human kind and other creatures instead of suffering
from wars, conflicts, diseases, hunger, hatred, etc.

SUNSET AT THE NORTHPOLE‏

(I guess the god referred to in the text was Photoshopped out by a previous sharer. – Ed)

SUNSET AT THE NORTHPOLE‏

This is the sunset at the North Pole with the moon at its closest point last week.

A scene you will probably never get to see in person, so take a moment and enjoy God at work at the North Pole.

And, you also see the sun below the moon .

An amazing photo and not one easily duplicated.   You may want To pass it on to others so they can enjoy it.

The Chinese have a saying that goes something like this:

‘When someone shares with you something of value, you have an obligation to share it with others!’

I just did. Your turn.

Directions to Heaven‏

Your smile for the day…. just had to forward this one
 
A little boy was waiting for his mother to come out of the grocery store. As he waited, he was approached by a man who asked, “Son, can you tell me where the Post Office is?”

The little boy replied, “Sure! Just go straight down this street a coupla blocks and turn to your right.”

The man thanked the boy kindly and said, “I’m the new pastor in town.  I’d like for you to come to church on Sunday…I’ll show you how to get to Heaven.”

The little boy replied with a chuckle.  “You’re bullshitting me, right?   You don’t even know the way to the Post Office!”
