JACKIE CHAN PORTRAIT MADE OF 64,000 CHOPSTICKS

…it could only be artist Hong Yi (Red) - the master of creating artistic wonders out of ordinary objects. In the past we’ve seen her craft portraits from coffee stains, rolled up socks and food to name a few.

This time she’s fashioned world-renowned actor Jackie Chan out of disposable chopsticks - 64, 000 of them.

Jackie turned 60 this year on April 6th, 2014 and Red presented him with this portrait at his birthday celebration.

She spent a month collecting chopsticks from cafes, stalls and factories in Zhejiang and Beijing, then tying each of them up to create the portrait that took an entire month to finish.

To see the video of Red in action go to our full story.
