The intricate carvings of famous faces were created with just one material - cardboard.  British artist Giles Oldershaw, from Oxford, has been making them for three years but suffers from Parkinson's and needs 26 tablets to relieve the symptoms every day.<br />
<br />
Amazingly, he's still able to make these impressive pieces despite suffering involuntary shaking in his arms and legs since contracting the illness nine years ago.  He will find a suitable portrait, make the drawing on the top layer of cardboard and then cut into it and tear using a scalpel and tweezers.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
