Colombian based artist Diana Beltran Herrera has been constructing the exotic bird sculptures, out of paper, since 2012. Each paper sculpture starts with an extensive study of each bird species and their natural habitat. Her most recent project incorporates birds into life sized stamps from Asia and South America. The vibrant colors and intricate details are absolutely exquisite! How amazing would it be if any of these countries printed these beauties as their official postage stamp? If anything, I’d love to just see her continue the series.
