There have been some impressive tributes created for the beloved Super Mario Bros. franchise, but Pietro D'Angelo's paperclip sculptures may very well wipe the floor with them. Pietro D'Angelo accomplishes this tediously intricate feat by attaching the common stationery staple to larger wireframes.

Born in Palermo, Italy, Pietro D'Angelo usually creates sculptures of ordinary people or reproductions of classic works of art. By venturing into the Mushroom Kingdom in search of some muses, the Italian artist was certainly not disappointed. In total, Pietro D'Angelo has rendered such iconic video game imagery as a Super Mushroom, Koopa Troopa, warp pipe and, of course, the man himself, Super Mario.

Colorful and shimmering, Pietro D'Angelo's sculptures will be coveted by gamers around the world.
