|Remember my project that I did with my son's school, having the kids fold origami cranes to help the children of Japan? I came across this in the NY Times...|
Brazilian artist Vic Muniz used some of the 2 million cranes collected by the Bezos Family Foundation ( similar project that raised over $400,000 to help Japan)
and he made a mosaic from them, to be used to create a fundraiser poster.
|Seemingly simple, they actually were a bit difficult at first...I have a whole new respect for origami!|
|Reading about Vic Muniz, and how he uses dirt, diamonds, sugar, string, chocolate syrup and garbage to create large mosaics made me curious, so I did a little virtual tour ~|
|Here is Mona Lisa in peanut butter and jelly....who would have ever thought!?|
