It’s safe to say that Nintendo knows how to make iconic characters and game series, and these Nintendo wood carvings perfectly encapsulate our favourite games in a unique and arty way.
The retro gaming community stretchers further than just gamers, you know! We’ve seen this much from the best retro gaming books with titles portraying the wonderful Game Boy Cover Art that defined a generation.
And now, we’ve come across these wonderful Nintendo wood carvings by crafty Etsy creator Pigminted. Spanning everything from game carts to nostalgia-sparking cover art, Pigmented creates stunning pieces that look so real that they wouldn’t look out of place in a NES or GBA!

Nintendo Wood Carvings – A Memory
Frozen In Time
I’m quite proud of that title!
Based in Indiana, Pigminted twins a steady hand and an eye for detail with a love of all things gaming. From Pokemon cards to GBA carts, there is something for everyone over on their official Etsy store.
Link almost looks as though he’s about to jump out of the cartridge above, and the detail on the NES carts below is phenomenal!
Take a look at some of the collection below and meet me at the end of the article for a summary!
Thank’s for joining me again!
Each of Pigminted’s products is handmade. That includes the writing on the Pokemon cards and the minuscule engraving on the Paper Mario GamCube game above. In a sense, they are all one of a kind, which makes them even more special!
As these gifts aren’t your ordinary present’s they won’t come cheap. The Twilight Princess game cover above costs around $180.
Still, you won’t ever need to worry about blowing dust out of the cart to make it work, and this is a feature piece that could well take pride of place on your mantlepiece, coffee table, or beside your TV in your games room.
The possibilities, are endless, and you would be supporting an independant business at the same time.
Head over to the Pigminted Etsy store to check out more designs and to make a purchase!
