Professor Wei Jingxian: A Hair Needle Artist!

I am not into items made of hair. It gives me the creep. But whenI saw these portraits, I was amazed. The president portraits above were made of hair, by the well known, Professor Wei Jingxian, who has been using various needle work to create more than 100 portraits of ancient and modern celebrities! In 1985, he even gave Princess Diana a portrait of her self. Read and see more of his amazing artwork and background on his website.
