Artist carves people from avocado stones

An artist has carved mini people from avocado stones.

Irish artist Jan Campbell has been busily forging a name for herself in the art industry by carving the pit of the fruit into tiny ornaments.

And the creative mastermind has uploaded images of her designs to her Instagram page.

Speaking about her latest venture, Jan wrote: "I found Dagda and his magic harp inside an avocado stone when the Dagda played his harp he could make anyone who heard it giggle with joy, cry with sorrow, or fall instantly into the softest sleep. The playing of his harp made the seasons come in the correct order I want to make a small ensemble of musicians next I will carve a Viol de Gamba player - let me know if you have any suggestions of other instruments you'd like to see.(sic)."
