It is becoming a trend using all types of products to create a mosaic. We have seen examples with used metro tickets, pieces of scrap or what ever inspire people to assemble an artistic object.
In this example, the artists has used 4,000 small photographs of the US soldiers who have fallen in Iraq. The pictures have been arranged into a portrait of their good-time-having â€œCommander-in-Chiefâ€ and his potential successor.
More words fail me and are not needed. Therefore I solely refer to the words of the creator of this mosaic, Nico Pitney of Huffington Post. "In remembrance of the 4,000 brave men and women who sacrificed everything for us -- and the two men who would continue this great tragedy, despite the cost to our soldiers, our military, and our nation," said Pitney.

(Note: Since some photos of fallen U.S. soldiers are unavailable, there are duplicates.)
