Whether painting or weaving, this amazing piece of artwork is made with yarn woven allover it. It starts with a scaled drawing of the subject on a huge wooden canvass. The drawing is then covered with half-pierced nails on strategic areas, with portions that need shade or blackening applied with more nails.
Then the yarn is woven around the nails. Portions with nails spaced closer together and the yarn woven repeated times produce darker shades. Portions with lighter shades have their nails spaced apart and the yarn woven lesser times.
The finished product is simply unbelievably accurate.
