The art of cutting out

You know books that are cut out to create a secret compartment? This is level up. Matteo Giuseppe Pani created a one off piece called 'Scarab', a book with a scarab beetle cut from every page creating a thing of real beauty - for The Onassis Cultural Centre, a contemporary design muesum in Athens. It's 45 layers of hand cut pages creating a symbol of regeneration and creation.

Dedicated as a positive symbol to Greece. And dedication to having a very steady hand.
