Indiana High school student Jacob Feazel’s art project required 4,466 tiny toy army men, between 20-30 cans of spray paint and over eleven days of work to create a very special American flag.
Feazel’s flag was built from scratch using a four by six sheet of plywood as base to hold the toy soldiers. Jacob’s mom, Stacy Bishop-Feazel documented the entire process and posted photos on Facebook.
She also revealed that most of the painting was done in single digit temperatures sometimes with a negative windchill.
Once completed, the massive flag was loaded into a pickup truck and taken to Maconaquah High School in Bunker Hill, Indiana.
In addition to impressing his teachers and classmates, Facebook users were also taken aback in awe after Jacob’s mom posted images of the completed project. As of Monday afternoon, the flag images have been shared more than 266,000 times.
Despite receiving offers to purchase his finished art project, Jacob told the local television station during an interview he has no plans to sell his project.
