Fall leaves, in their brilliance and abundance, signal change. 

Iranian artist Omid Asadi pushes this notion by further transforming fall leaves into stunning works of art.

Charles Dickens, Auguste Rodin's "The Thinker," and famous Iranian poet Shamlou, all feature in Asadi's delicate creations, which can be seen on his website and Facebook page.

To make his leaf cuts, Asadi first collects fall leaves that would otherwise be trampled, and then presses them. He then sketches complex patterns and uses a knife to cut the patterns in a meticulous process that takes between one week and two months to complete.

"A slight slip of the hand could rip the surface and destroy hours of work," says Asadi.

Wimp.com writes about the ways Asadi's challenges of moving from Iran to England are represented in his leaf cut artworks.

"One day on a walk with his wife, Elham Rafiei, he started thinking about leaves," reports Wimp.com. "He thought the leaves in his new town were beautiful, and worthy of celebration."

Wimp.com explains, after that decisive walk, Asadi began collaborating with his wife, who is proficient in the ancient art of Persian miniature painting, to create his first leaf cuts.

The extraordinary nature of Asadi's work is captured in a quote on his website: "Anyone can love a rose, but it takes a lot to love a leaf. It's ordinary to love the beautiful but it's beautiful to love the ordinary."
