Believe It or Not!, the painting displayed here, a replica of Jean Francois Millet’s masterpiece entitled, “The Angelus”, was created in a toaster from 60 pieces of ordinary white bread.
Created by Tadhiko Ogawa from Japan, the bread is first microwaved to eliminate the moisture that causes spoilage.
The artist then photographs the subject and divides it into single slice sections before cutting the outline in aluminium foil. The foil shapes are then placed on slices of bread and toasted.
After toasting, the crusts are removed, and the pieces are interlocked together like a jigsaw puzzle creating the finished masterpiece shown here.
