An Indiana student named Jacob wanted to make his final art project a reflection of his patriotism and set out to make a very unique illustration of the American flag.

The massive undertaking took more than 50 hours to complete.

Working in the garage, Jacob was forced to keep working through freezing temperatures in order to complete the project before the deadline.

When you look closer, you see what the flag is really made of and what made the project so overwhelming.

That right there is 4,466 army men painted red white and blue and covering every inch of the flag.

The response has been overwhelming on social media with comments like “So Cool! Semper fi from a Marine mom!” and “No words to describe how beautiful this art work is. How proud you must feel! It brought tears to my eyes.”

We think Jacob absolutely knocked it out of the park with this one. What about you?
