portrait of a lady (on a paintbrush)

Well, this is a bit clever: ladies’ faces whittled into paintbrush handles. Artist Rebecca Szeto is the skilful lass behind the project, and is generally interested in “things that fall between the cracks of place and language”. Her Paintbrush Portraits series pays homage to a variety of sisters, both historically significant and anonymous, and if you’d like to find out more about each of their back stories, simply make your way over to Rebecca’s website. Otherwise, scroll down to enjoy her handiwork.
