These papercraft art pieces are so very wrong but so very right--they're amazing replicas of pistols made by a papercraft expert.

While these are no doubt artistically brilliant, it might not be a good idea to make one of these models if you live in a place where carrying a gun replica can get you either arrested or shot.

Implications - Despite the rise of digital art and the mass adoption of computer-based creativity, artists who specialize in traditional mediums are finding a foothold in the DIY market. Many of these creations defy convention, however, and feature traditional art forms such as woodworking and origami in new interpretations and forms that are new to the industry.
