Portrait of Jimi Hendrix Made out of Guitar Picks

Artist Ed Chapman made this mosaic of Hendrix out of 5,000 Fender guitar picks. He auctioned it for £23,000 (US $37,352) to benefit cancer research. You can view a gallery of his other mosaics at his website, most of which are made from ceramic fragments.

What an excellent portrait and great use of guitar picks! Just goes to show that there's no limit to mosaics, just limits to our imagination. Everyday items can be a source of inspiration if we are open to ideas. We live in a 'throw away' society which contributes to worldwide issues of pollution. I enjoy recycling items that have been deemed 'no longer any good'. Take a look around you today, be inspired and reduce waste.
