Russian engineering artist Roman Booteen creates absolutely gorgeous, intricate carvings on disused U.S. Morgan Dollar coins. Not only are Booteen’s carvings beautiful, but many of them also hold a hidden secret within the design. These embedded secrets can range from slightly creepy with a rolled eye to slightly dangerous with a set of retractable teeth to adorable with a scarab’s flapping wings. Some can transform into jewelry, while others are just incredible to view.https://www.instagram.com/p/BblxrONjn5C/ https://www.instagram.com/p/BLpxD13A8qh/ https://www.instagram.com/p/BmOIcOXjThj/ https://www.instagram.com/p/BMqhJnUgfPc/ https://www.instagram.com/p/BZQMPmajnOY/ https://www.instagram.com/p/BgyVej6Dhf6/
