The impressive portraits, recently posted to Reddit, required a lot of patience. Frantz started creating the cardboard pieces a few years ago, when it took him a couple of weeks at least. Now he says he can get an original done in one or two days. He used to use an exacto blade to create them but these three were done with a detail knife. Click through to see the carved portraits:
