Crayola artist extraordinaire Herb Williams made a crayon art installation that merges wildlife and art forms.

The exhibition titled 'Call of the Wild' is a massive piece made of 75, 000 crayons and comes in at 7 feet tall with a width of 15 feet long. The show consists of clusters of crayons in an array of colors that explode to life. One can visualize the process by viewing initial sketches on display along with an up-close look at the actual piece itself. The theme of this particular piece is birds. Herb channeled his inner Alfred Hitchcock and made the hundreds of crayons have an uncanny resemblance to real birds.

Herb's crayon art is explosive, nostalgic and a showpiece for kids and adults alike. Stats for Giant Crayon Trees Trending: Older & Warm
