Baptiste Debombourg recently created something beautiful out of a medium usually described as an office supply: a mural created entirely using staples. Inspired by the ancient story of Icarus and rendered in a classic style reminicent of the Renaissance, his modern work is also sure to leave a mark. Titled “Air Force One” –a symbol of sublime power, he says — the piece took a notable 35,000 staples to complete.
