This Artist Makes Insanely Accurate Knitted People
Each one takes at least three months to make.
Liisa Hietanen is a Finnish artist, who currently lives in Hämeenkyrö, Finland. She also creates ridiculously cool fiber people.
Her work blew up when her brother, pictured here, posted it on Reddit.
She's inspired by the villagers around her, and Hietanen told BuzzFeed that by the end of the process she gets to know her subjects very well.
When Hietanen finds a new subject for her art, she takes photographs of them from every possible angle. This is because creating a fiber person takes about three to four months.
She uses rebar for internal strength and then uses cement to weight them in a specific position.
The results are lovingly intimate, and Hietanen says that, "People often feel they know the person and their reactions are warm and familiar."
