Lady Gaga's poker face recreated in BB pellets

275x250.jpgArtist John O’Hearn has created an odd-looking portrait of Lady Gaga -- by using thousands of BB gun pellets.

The sculptor from Florida says can recreate any image using the odd medium which involves lining up red, green, blue, black and white balls in a grid formation.

His Lady Gaga creation measures 4 feet high and is 8 feet wide and contains a whopping 61,509 Airsoft BB pellets.

The image - which has been acquired by Ripley’s Believe It or Not! - took a month to complete.

But it won't be the oddest portrait on show, there's also a President Obama made from gumballs, an Elvis made from M&M and a  Marilyn Monroe of gummy bears.
275x250.jpg “This is a spectacular work of art,” said Edward Meyer, VP of Exhibits and Archives for Ripley’s Believe It or Not! “O’Hearn uses computer technology and an unusual medium to put a modern-day spin on pointillism.”
