At present, a Van Gogh's huge self-portrait made from thousands of shirts is on display in the lobby of Marunouchi Building, near Tokyo Station, Japan.
This 10m x 10m self-portrait was created by using 2.070 shirts with 24 different colors. The interesting idea is from Onward Kashiyama Company, a apparel maker. They arranged colorful shirts to make this beautiful and unique design, which requires precise and careful work. Van Gogh's mosaic will remain on display until May 16, 2010.
