Saimir Strati Nails, Toothpicks, and Corks It

Albanian artist Saimir Strati’s mosaic of Leonardo DaVinci’s self-portrait, made entirely of nails, holds the Guinness World Record for largest nail mosaic (2006). It measures a tall 6 1/2 x 13 feet and holds 880 lbs of nails, each working as a pixel, rising and falling to depict DaVinci’s features and hair.

Saimir’s precise eyes, patience, and hard work have allowed him to follow his 2006 guiness world record with two others: largest toothpick mosaic in 2007 for Reinless Spirit and for largest cork mosaic in 2008 for Mediterraneana.

In case you were wondering, Saimir specializes in mosaics. I can’t wait for him to outdo himself. Check out his three record setters below, and some of his just as beautiful smaller mosaic portraits here.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    A hospital based milk bank is a much safer alternative. Donors can be tested to assure the safety of the milk.The milk can be frozen and stored in a controlled environment.

    The most efficient Seo is done by making relationships with other web sites which are in the identical vertical and as a result carry great relevacne inside the links they point to your site. Some random links for instance blog commenting is fine, but you have to have strong backlinks to maintain a very good position in the SERPS.
