These fantastically hairy male figures were made by artist Fiong Hung Hom. What makes these detailed figurines extra interesting is that they were carved from bamboo roots. As it turns out, bamboo roots are perfect for creating tiny bearded men.

Fiong Hung Hom, who comes from Vietnam, has been creating art since the age of 15 and has now perfected the art of sculpting with bamboo roots. This unusual material makes for a visually intriguing work of art. In these photos, viewers can see the dozens of sculpted male faces, each one sporting a beard of roots. Some of them are wearing hats; some appear to be laughing or smiling, while others seem to be rolling their eyes.

These unusual sculptures turn bamboo roots into captivating little characters.
