And it's not just animals, it's just that we all love them. Seriously, this is a super-talent which has sparked many creative ideas. Face-painting is great, we love to look like something else for the day as long as it's in the spirit of the occasion, but what about something less conspicuous? If it's a low-key glam option you're looking for, something that celebrates yet doesn't parade your obliviousness to the perceptions of others, a small ornate hand painting may be just right. Highlighted in the work of Iantha Naicka, this miniature painting specialist uses her own hand as a canvas to portray some truly adorable and life-like images. Now working on translating the idea to even smaller objects such as sea-shells, Iantha's mission to use something other than traditional paper or canvas is ongoing.
