New York-based artist Kumi Yamashita has created a stunning series of photorealistic portraits, using only nails and a single unbroken sewing thread.

In her ongoing series called ‘Constellation’, Yamashita intricately constructs each portrait by nailing a white wooden block with thousands of tiny nails and tying the thread around each nail.

Details on her subjects’ faces are formed by balancing the thread concentration and creating geometrical patterns to add visual texture to the portraits.

The end results are beautifully constructed, hyper-realistic portraits of her subjects.
