If you ate two pieces of toast every day for 500 days, you’d almost have consumed this artist’s medium by the end.

With 1,064 pieces of toast in total, artist Jolita Vaitkute recreated her city in stunning sepia tones for the opening of a bread factory in Vilnius, Lithuania. The resulting piece, which stands at a colossal 11 by 13 feet, unsurprisingly broke the country’s record for largest work of toast art.

Although the idea seems far-fetched, conceptualizing the project ended up being the easiest part.
