    These are the works of Albanian artist Saimir Strati. The nail mosaic was named “The Largest Nail Mosaic” on September 4th, 2006.

    “I have lost count of the nails, but I think it was around 400 kilos (880 pounds) of nails. I have used different nails. The condition was they should be industrial nails and they are,” Strati said.

    “My technique resembles (digital) camera pixels. I have used a nail for each pixel,” he told Reuters

    As for the toothpick horse.

    The 41-year-old will craft his mosaic of a horse using about a million toothpicks on an 8sq metre polystyrene board at the International Centre of Culture in Tirana, the capital of Albania.

    The work, which is likely to take about 25 days to complete, will be weighed up by Guinness World Records officials.

    This is not the first time that Strati has attempted a remarkable feat. Last year, the artist created the world’s largest mosaic made of nails, using some 500,000 industrial nails.(ANI)
