Toilet Paper Art: Anastassia Elias Carves Detailed Scenes Into Tubes (PHOTOS)

Anastassia Elias

Most people usually discard toilet paper rolls after the last sheet is used. Apparently, painter Anastassia Elias did not get the memo.

Equipped with a scalpel, rather than her usual brush and palette, Elias carved miniature intricate scenes inside empty toilet paper tubes. She titled her series, “Rouleaux,” and published the results in a book under the same name.

Elias also sculpted dancing ballerinas, cirque performers, and a Mexican mariachi band into her cardboard canvases, not to mention a menagerie of animals.

Take a look at the slideshow below to see more of her amazing cardboard cutouts.
