A must see: Artist recreates van Goh classic with dominoes

Vincent van Goh 'Starry Night' recreated in YouTube video

One of Vincent Van Gogh's most famous works of art is his 1889 painting 'Starry Night.' This famous masterpiece has inspired countless re-creations and tributes over the years, but one very committed artist used a less traditional medium: dominoes.

The recreation of the art masterpiece was done by YouTube user FlippyCat.

He writes about this latest work:

I recreated Vincent van Gogh's "Starry Night" from just over 7,000 dominos. The second attempt took about 11 hours total to build.

The first attempt failed, when I dropped a screw from the camera rig onto it. I was able to improve the swirling clouds better in the second attempt as a result though. I do not know how long the first attempt took, but I did not have any accidents building like I did in the second attempt!

There were 2 small breaks in the fall of this project. I did not complete the leading grey line and left out a domino which stopped the reaction in the bottom. The star that is left standing was very close to falling, but the first dominos held in place :(
