Saimir Strati Nails, Toothpicks, and Corks It

eeposv5pdk13ew7h3dibtrl6o1 500 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.

  • insure and go

    Professional Insurance:You can think of this kind of insurance as liability insurance for specific professions. Doctors, Lawyers and Engineers have to have this kind of insurance in case they make a bad decision or give poor advice. This kind of insurance is expensive, especially in areas like the medical field where professionals are making judgment calls many times a day.

    Surprisingly very few items came up when I googled pool house/hotel with pool on Korčula, most of the result, was agencies offering the same units, so the selection was between a villa 10 km from Korčula town and a hotel in Lumbarda (4 km from Korčula town), when the girls saw the pictures on the hotels homepage the decision was taken :)
