Butterfly Wings, Pennies and Gumballs, at Ripley’s

A blend of ‘smart’ and ‘hard’ work, we loved these portraits at Ripley’s Believe It or Not, in New York City.

This portrait of Frank Sinatra is crafted from hundreds of artfully arranged butterfly wings gathered from the jungles of Mexico.Image

The Abraham Lincoln portrait is made entirely from pennies: one cent coins.   Image

President Barack Obama is made from 12784 gumballs.Image

  1. Gumball Obama and penny Lincoln amazing! It would have been hard to take the photos on the hop with a flash but without too much reflection and to also get the whole artwork in – nicely done.
