Dec 3, 2008: Cork Art

Quote:
Albanian artist Saimir Strati created the largest mosaic made of corks in Tirana, Albania.
Strati glued 229,764 corks of various shapes and colors over a plastic banner to make
“Romeo with a crown of grapes playing the guitar while dancing with the sea and the sun.”
He worked 14 hours a day for 28 days and completed his project


I would guess the corks were precut and precolored before he started. I wonder how long that took?

My cousins husband makes cork boards out of wine bottle corks.

They aren't as good as that one though that's for sure.

Impressive.

I'd say right around 14 hrs a day for 28 days...

I was referring to the pre-cutting and pre-coloring, smartass. :p

What a corker!

I just noticed the first guy on the left. I think he's about to "critique" it.
