The Toothpaste Portrait is not exactly what it sounds like. For those who might assume by the name alone that it is simply a portrait drawn with toothpaste, they will be sorely mistaken. Instead, the Toothpaste Portrait is much more impressive. It is a miniature sculpture made out of the minty substance. The sculpture takes on the form of a man sitting patiently on the bristles of a toothbrush as though waiting for the inevitable: to be crushed against the teeth of a giant human.

Created by Chilean/Japanese artist Kazuki Guzman, the same person who embossed fruit with luxury monograms, the Toothpaste Portrait shows off his skill in another unique way. It does fall in line with his other miniature artworks. Stats for Miniature Minty Sculptures Trending: Older & Chilly
