It's pretty easy to see why - it's so intricate, and the one minute time-lapse video shows off the immense talent of artists Kevin Attard and Josephine Cachia. While watching the whole thing, we couldn't help but be amazed at the creativity behind the whole project, but more importantly the sheer patience needed to complete such a job.
