Saimir Strati Makes Art Out Of Nails!

My mother sends me forwarded e-mail chains all the time. Most of them are not worth forwarding or even mentioning ever again. But once in a while, there are some artistic gems, and this is one of them. Albania’s Saimir Strati is one talented mosaic artist, but in this particular instance, he’s working with nails of varying depths to create a relief of a bearded man’s face. It even won him some Guiness World Records. Amazing.
