Mark Zuckerberg Facebook Portrait: Artist Hong Yi Creates Face Out Of Books (VIDEO)

A Shanghai-based artist has created a pun-filled portrait of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg out of stacked books.

A time-lapse YouTube clip shows Hong Yi, also known as Red, building a tower of 36 books over the course of seven days that eventually resembles Zuckerberg's face.

Unfortunately, the tower of Zuckerberg stands for only a moment before collapsing.

While Red's projects usually portray famous Chinese icons, she chose to profile Zuckerberg in memory of a recent trip to the U.S., she explains in a recent blog entry.
