Through intricate craftsmanship, these examples of egg shell art feature classical recreations of iconic and historical art pieces. Based out of Izmir, Turkey, artist Süreyya Noyan has cracked open and removed the yolks of chicken eggs, turning the inside of their shells into her own personal canvases.

With a tiny brush and pencil, she is able to create microscopic tributes to such memorable paintings including Vincent van Gogh's 'Starry Night,' Evard Munch's 'The Scream,' and Katsushika Hokusai's 'The Great Wave off Kanagawa.'

Not just limited to classical painting recreations, Noyan has also paid tribute to her home nation with several of her egg shell art pieces -- compositions that are adorned with images of Turkish architecture.
