I've seen some impressive art pieces on Trend Hunter before, but I have to say that Baptiste Debombourg's staple masterpiece takes the cake easily. Takes it, eats it and has another.

The patience and talent one must have to be able to execute something like this is astronomical. Using 35,000 staples, Baptiste Debombourg's lead image is of Icarus. I strongly suggest you take a look at the gallery above to see a close up of his work. Stats for Spectacular Staple Art Trending: Older & Warm
