Wow! Can you imagine the time it takes to place each individual string so that it becomes part of the whole emotion? These are amazing!

On a humorous note, I'd love to hear Gomez's thoughts on this art form! lol

That looks very labour intensive. What an original idea.
Have a great day.

How cool is that!?!?!? Reminds me a little of a game me and a childhood friend use to play. We each would take a ball of yard and tie it off at the same place. We would then string it all over the room, in and out of drawers, around lamps, etc. until we ran out. We would then trade yarn colors and see who could ball it all back up first!
