A New Zealand artist has made a giant portrait of Elvis Presley from over 4,000 small slices of toast. Maurice Bennett's previous toast portraits include da Vinci's Mona Lisa and rugby player Jonah Lomu. He spent two months making the Presley piece to mark the 25th anniversary of his death. On his website he says he produces the effect by toasting bread "to different tones to create skin highlights and shadow." The portrait will go on show at the Walrus Gallery in Wellington in September.
