This Image Is Made with 500,000 Fish Hooks



This amazing picture by Cuban artist Yoan Capote looks like a black and white photo, but the ragged-looking surface is actually made out of half a million fish hooks. Capote and thirty assistants spent six months nailing them into place on plywood. Don't touch them! The barbs are exposed. That's because Capote wants observers to experience the "sensorial power and aggressiveness of the objects in its sculpture condition."

Asked why he chose fishhooks as a medium for his artwork, Capote said ā€œI decided to use fishhooks in this series because I wanted to create a tension between beauty and seduction and danger and entrapment.ā€
