Charis creates mosaics of icons or images to create his finished work, and does some pretty interesting work as you can see.
There is a tutorial in Greek that walks you through the process. There are quite a few screen shots, so you still get the idea of how Charis is doing his work.
I find this to be very creative, and the end result is very interesting. It is worth clicking on the picture to see how the image looks in different sizes.

I appreciate seeing work by people that have vivid imaginations like this, but when I see work like this, I feel like a monkey using a rock as a hammer when I try to be creative.
