Wow! These are awesome!! It amazes me how much detail is put into them, similar to paintings on feathers.

Thanks SO much for sharing them with us!

That is just incredible! I wonder if they can seal them in such a way as to preserve them. They would be pretty fragile.

Very cool!

I really CAN'T believe my eyes! Those cannot be real leaves! That is definitely a skill, to be able to paint on dried leaves!

These leaves aren't painted. Natural leaf carving is actual manual cutting and removal of a leaf's surface to produce an art work on a leaf. The process of carving is performed by artists using tools to carefully remove the surface without cutting or removing the veins. The veins add detail into the subject matter of the carving.
The material or most common leaf used in leaf carving is the leaf of a Chinar tree. The Chinar tree is native to India, Pakistan and China. Chinar leaves have a close resemblance to maple leaves.
