Is it art or is it a black and decker advertisement?

An albanian artist has won his fifth guinness world record.

His art form is a little different. It involves... wood screws.

In fact, Saimir Strati has drilled over 350-thousand screws over the last two weeks to make the largest screw mosaic in the world.

He wanted to finish in time for Guinness World Records to celebrate its 55th anniversary.

The design is built around a u-s one dollar bill, but Strati replaced George washington with the Greek Poet Homer.

Strati explained that the drill depth of the screw is what he uses to create the illusion of depth.

Strati already has four other guinness records in making similar mosaics one out of toothpicks.
