There is a Japanese artist that is creating gorgeous and stunningly realistic cat art using the needle felting technique. The artist, Wakuneco, uses the fuzzy fibers of wool to sculpt and create hyper-realistic three-dimensional sculptures of cat faces.
As My Modern Met explains, “Each incredible three-dimensional, felted feline is made by painstakingly poking layers of wool with a needle until the fibers gradually compact and form into solid shapes. Wakuneco’s palm-sized pieces feature realistic fur, lifelike glass eyes, and true to life whiskers.”

Wakuneco even uses photographs of real cats as reference, so she can create truly beautiful replicas of someone’s special feline.
