01-Front-Page-Alexi-Torres-Woven-Oil-Paintings-www-designstack-co
This woven kind of art is the work of Cuban artist Alexi Torres.  He takes iconic images and gives them a different twist.  You will have to enlarge the images in the article to appreciate the level detail to make it look like interlaced wool.  It is almost a sculpture using paint, he has to build up and draw all the strands to complete the painting.
Once in the article you can enlarge the image by pressing it (not the first one).
