Paper carving, also known as paper relief. Ancient Chinese paper carving art originated in the Han Dynasty, and most of them were born in the hometown of folk art. Among them, paper lanterns with strong folk charm, in the art form of palace lanterns, created a classic chapter of Chinese paper sculpture art, also known as paper sculpture and paper relief. Its origins can be traced back to the invention of paper in the Han Dynasty in China and the improvement of paper in Germany in the 16th century.
Paper carving is different from the paper-cut art that we know every day. Artists sculpt flat paper and add layers upon layers to create unexpected 3D effects.
Italian artist Elisa Mearelli specializes in paper art. He envisioned a series of 3D artworks, using paper to create rich layered effects.
Elisa Mearelli was born and raised in this small town. In her work, paper has always been the protagonist, obviously the role of color is not so important.
Elisa Mearelli makes good use of natural materials such as foliage, vines and flowers, and uses plants as inspiration to create stunning three-dimensional effects through sculpture and layered displays.
Combined with natural light, it looks beautiful and dazzles more and more people, and you'll fall into this deep, dreamy piece of paper...

When the applied sunlight light changes, so does the light and shadow of the work, and the interaction of the paper overlapping the light also affects the actual viewing effect.
