The photo above appears to be a regular photo of a dog (well, it is), but if you look closely, you can see that it is made up of nonpareils, a type of round candy sprinkle used on cakes and other sweets. Can’t quite see it? Let’s zoom in on the picture.

Joel Brochu, an art student, worked on this meticulously for 8 whole months, he used 221,184 nonpareil sprinkles applied on a 4×1½ inch board. He only used 6 colors (Red, Orange, Green, Blue, Black, and White) to create various hues and tones. This art piece is also a recreation of a photograph called “Be Patient” by photographer Shingo Uchiyama
