Ripley’s Believe It or Not! has acquired a portrait of Lady Gaga made out of 61,509 Airsoft BBs, the plastic balls used in a popular type of BB gun.
“The artwork was created by Gainesville, Florida artist John O’Hearn, who is primarily a sculptor, but has spent the last few years experimenting with Airsoft BB’s as a medium,” the release explains. “The BB’s act as pixels in the mosaics he creates. O’Hearn says he can recreate any picture or portrait from just 5 colors of BB’s — red, yellow, blue, black and white. This project took about a month to finish.”
