Nail Gandhi by sana24 Nail Gandhi by sana24
Those are all nails.. 30" x 36"....
Behold my masterpiece Nail Gandhi! This is a giant sculpture I made by hammering nails to a large board... All those dots are nails O.O (extreme stippling....) This took about 6 months and was very painful and frustrating. but it looks amazing in the end :)

sadly this is the only picture I have of this piece :(

WOW, this is absolutely breathtaking!:D
Where did you build this?
Did you draw/map it out first, or was it "Freehand"?

Thank you :) I made this for my art class during my senior year. I printed out a photo I created of Gandhi over the summer, blew it up in photoshop and printed out squares for reference as where to put the nails

That's a very interesting medium to work with! I might understand how painful it can be to hammer some of those, especially the ones that are very close together, but a great result nonetheless considering its limits

Amazing likeness! Before I even saw the title I knew it had to be Gandhi!
