This Artist's Incredibly Intricate Laser-Cut Paper Sculptures Are A Feast For The Eyes

Paper is "neutral" and "unassuming," artist Eric Standley says.
But in his hands, the material is transformed into works of art that are anything but.
An associate professor of studio art at Virginia Tech, Standley spends hours creating gorgeous 3D sculptures and mandalas that are composed of layer after intricate layer of laser-cut paper. The finished works of art are reminiscent of the colorful stained-glass windows of cathedrals or mosques -- a resemblance that is not accidental.
His paper sculptures have been inspired by Gothic and Islamic architecture.
