Artist Rob Surette has created a portrait of Jesus Christ using only push-pins. While some people claim to see Jesus on pieces of toast and in clothing stains, Surette's Jesus portrait is perhaps the most accurate of the odd depictions.

The 5 1/2 foot-tall portrait uses 24,790 pins. The project took over six months to complete as Surette worked on it one hour a day, every day of the week. When viewed up close, the portrait seems comprise of nothing but a bunch of colored dots, but as one backs away, the shape of the face and eyes slowly begin to form.

The Jesus portrait by Rob Surette is currently priced at $250,00, but there is a rumor that Jesus himself is looking to buy it for his living room.
