A Japanese Artist Transforms Stones Into Tiny Animals That You Might Want to Hold in Your Hand Forever

Beauty is all around us, even in unexpected places like right under our feet. And Japanese artist, Akie Nakata, believes in this with all her heart. Every time Akie walks along the riverside, she looks for unusual stones that have a story to tell. And then, with the help of some acrylic paint, she creates her amazing stone animals that look so alive, you need to touch them to understand they’re not real.

We at Bright Side are absolutely in awe of Nakata’s works and hope that you’ll love them too.
