bamboo sticks, pins and socks?

A while ago, I made this post ( about Hong Yi and her art made of coffee stains, which is still amazingly beautiful and speaks to me on more than one level. If you haven't seen it, please take a look.

Now she has created another piece. A portrait of Zhang Yimou, a Chinese film director, who directed the movies Hero, House of Flying Daggers and Memoirs of a Geisha.

Now, what makes this one special, is the fact that it is made out of socks.
This is not only an incredibly interesting idea, but the process alone is well worth watching.

This is a video about the creation:
