The Legend of Zelda, Animal Crossing, Mario and More are Re-Imaged as Intricate Wood Carvings

The Legend of Zelda wood carvings include boxart from Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, as well as other well known Nintendo franchises.

December 6, 2020

Etsy shop Pigminted features some truly gorgeous works that celebrate several Nintendo IPs. The shop features beautifully detailed wood carvings of box art and in-game screens from such titles as The Legend of Zelda, Animal Crossing, Super Mario, and Super Smash Bros. Check out some of the pieces in the gallery below:

If you’re interested in buying, you can both support the small business and net a lovely work of nerd art by purchasing from here.

Dave Rapoza, a Freelance Illustrator, Concept Artist, and Comic Artist, drew incredible fanart of Link and Ganon. And this father built the ultimate The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild playhouse for his kids. Illustrator @comfycorduroy drew several Breath of the Wild pieces reenacting several iconic scenes from Studio Ghibi’s Princess Mononoke. And back in August, another talented artist by the name of Jo (@BigSkyCastle on Twitter) created several Breath of the Wild illustrations in the breezier and lighter Studio Ghibli style.

Then there’s this nifty 3D printed breakable pot one fan made and showed off. If you’re a chef in the making, you can pick up a copy of the The Unofficial Legend of Zelda Cookbook. An extremely talented artist combined scenes from the upcoming Breath of the Wild 2 with the artstyle from the recent Link’s Awakening remake. Another artist created A Link Between Worlds diorama using the shell of a Gameboy. There’s an absolutely stunning Studio Ghibli-style Breath of the Wild fan animated trailer, while a dedicated fan spent two years recreating Breath of the Wild weapons.

We also have an animated pixel art mockup of a dungeon scene from Zelda II. The winner for last year’s official Link’s Awakening fanworks contest was revealed, with some great submissions from plenty of talented artists. And if you want something incredible from outside this contest, there’s this fantastic 3D printed recreation of Koholint Island from the game. The artist even provides a tutorial at the end of their video in case anyone else wanted to make one for themselves.

Some other works include Link’s house from Breath of the Wild faithfully created using Lego blocks, this lovely Sheikah runes phone charger, art of Twilight Princess meets Breath of the Wild, fanart of Link in the vibrant forest from Majora’s Mask, a recreation of the Breath of the Wild lantern, a bottle of Lon Lon milk from Ocarina of Time, and an alarm clock that plays A Link to the Past‘s theme.
