I’m a big fan of details especially when it comes to works of art. Although I do appreciate things done in more traditional ways, I find that I really have a soft spot for pieces like this. Mixed media, but on a whole different level.
This piece was named “Made in China” by artist, Joe Black. It took about 5,500 little toy soldiers to build this portrait of a young Chinese soldier. The original photograph was used on the front cover of LIFE magazine in January 1938 showing involvement of children in the Sino Japanese War.
