24 Km Of Thread Around 13000 Nails For A Wonderful Portrait

Ukrainian artist Zenyk Palagniuk wrapped 24 km (15 mi) of thread around 13,000 nails to create an amazingly realistic portrait of Justin Timberlake. It took the artist over 200 hours to complete. Palagniuk began by sketching the portrait on a large piece of plywood. He then hammered in all of the nails and wrapped the thread, varying the thickness to create the final portrait.

The style is strikingly similar to one pioneered by Kumi Yamashita with the major difference being that Yamashita uses a single thread to create her incredible portraits.
