You will never, ever guess the medium of this artwork created by Joel Brochu. I'll give you a clue: it's sweet. Have a guess? Here's a slow reveal:

Got it now???
They're candy sprinkles, aka nonpareils. Mr. Brochu used no less than 221,184 of them and a jeweler's tweezers to mount them onto a 4' x 1 1/2' board. The feat is amazing in itself, but factoring in that he used only 6 different colors of nonpareils to achieve the varied hues is nothing less than mind boggling. Or should I say 'eye boggling'?
