Art student Monte A. Smith, who also goes by the alias Senor Mysterioso, has created a unique art installation for his thesis project. Studying for a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, Monte A. Smith combined a fine material with a harsh object in this crocheted gun store installation.

The unique art work replicates a usual gun store display but is done entirely with yarn. Monte A. Smith built rifles, shotguns, pistols and even the ammo boxes you would find in a gun store. The crocheted gun store is a one-of-a-kind art installation that has already received lots of attention.

I'm not sure how long it took him to knit together all these weapons, but the end result is astonishing and I'm sure he received an A on his thesis.
