Van Gogh recreated in dominoes
An artist balanced and then knocked down more than 7,000 dominoes to recreate Van Gogh's Starry Night.
When the dominoes are knocked down one after the other, they slowly create the masterpiece.
A video of the project has become an online sensation, notching up nearly 300,000 hits in just four days.
The artist, who goes by the name of FlippyCat, spent 11 hours building the delicate structure - the second time he attempted it.
The first design failed after a small screw was dropped into the scene and caused the dominoes to fall unevenly.
The artist used a marked-out drawing of Van Gogh's painting with a small ruler along with a larger ruler to line up each row of colored bricks.
The first attempt failed because some of the sections of dominoes were placed too far apart and other fell unevenly, ruining the effect.
The second attempt was on the whole successful with only one tower of bricks refusing to fall - a problem solved with a domino sent sailing through the air.
