Look At This! Portrait Made From 5,500 Toy Soldiers

We've seen portraits and art works of all sorts of materials recently. To recap, there have been push pin odes to Jay-Z, a tiger made of cigarettes, and even works created by removing dust from a car. This portrait, made of 5,500 toy soldiers, falls in line.

Artist Joe Black reproduced Robert Capa's 1938 cover photograph of a Chinese Soldier from LIFE Magazine by adhering the toys to a vertical surface. The result is rather amazing, with the multi-colored soldiers combining to form one single man. The work, Made In China, was originally shown at the Moniker Art Fair in London late last year.
