The earliest known examples of mosaics consisted of pieces made of colored stones, shells and ivory. Mosaics have developed into a popular craft and art, and are not limited to professionals.

The Side was finished in 2012. It is a 40 x 32″ mosaic created by using 10,496 Multi-Colored Staples (7,696 Silver, 2,800 Red) on a painted board.

That’s a lot of staples…

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
