We originally saw these fantastic string and nail portraits here on Gizmodo. David and I did something like this a few years ago, but...a circle. No fantastic shading, no painstaking precision (this was made with one unbroken strand!) I'd be tempted to give something like this a go in our living room, if I wasn't concerned about being an unimaginative Copy-Pants. The circle, sure... a five year old could have imagined it, but at least it was birthed in my own dull noodle. So, for now, the new apartment will have bare walls while my brain works on propagating a new original idea... ... a rhombus? I kid, I kid.
But seriously. Isn't Kumi Yamashita talented?!
