You know how everyone doodles on a paper during class? When you hear the teacher go on and on and on and on like an Energizer bunny, so you pick up a pencil and start drawing little patters. Imagine doing that for 15 months (minus the Energizer teacher), well this is what that looks like.
The insanely talented Jonathan Bréchignac created this muslim prayer carpet using paper and Bic pencils.
The designs are so dizzyingly intricate, looking at this you can see patterns within patterns (inception style). The work, skill and dedication that went into this is unbelievable.
I probably couldn’t pray on this because I’d be too afraid of tearing it, or I’d be distracted by the gorgeous patterns.
Heres a description from the site:
Made to fit the size of an actual Muslim prayer carpet, this piece is drawn only with black Bic pencils. Painstakingly detailed, it explores different ways and patterns to create a unique whole with only a simple tool. Working on it for more than 15 months, Jonathan Bréchignac describes it as a fight with himself, inch by inch. Long periods of thinking and planning followed by trials to find the perfect patterns before even starting on it.
