This was made completely of wire and cards, and a sheet of cardboard. It took a very long time to create and to get the lighting correct.

This really is fantastic! It may have taken a long time, but you pulled it off beautifully. Plus the hand crafted vs. computer generated qaulity adds someting in my oppinion.
