Norwegian-based artist Anne-Karin Furunes has created something not quite photographic, and not quite a painting. Instead, she”s made portrait images of people entirely from thousands upon thousand (…upon thousands!) of tiny hand-punched perforated holes. The results? They”re startlingly awesome.

Take a look at these large-scale, hole-filled, totally entrancing portraits and tell your mind to start believing your eyes, pronto! They really are that awesome.
