Artist Cindy Chinn has carved a tiny train out of a pencil and its lead using a magnifying glass and X-Acto knife. The miniature piece is less than an inch tall and over five-and-a-half inches long, showcasing part of the locomotive barreling through a dark tunnel. Here, the wood casing plays an integral part of the piece and serves as a landscape for Chinn’s intricate graphite chiseling. This piece is currently for sale through Chinn’s Etsy shop.
