Michelle Wibowo has re-created Michelangelo's "The Creation of Adam" fresco using ten thousand marshmallows and approximately half a billion cake sprinkles.  The arrangement took over 168 hours to complete, and the final product measures 18.7 feet in width and 9 feet in height.  It was commissioned to commemorate the 450th anniversary of Michelangelo’s death in Rome at the age of 88.
