Vincent Van Gogh's 'Starry Night' Made From 7,000 Dominoes (VIDEO)

Domino master FlippyCat is back, and his creation just might be his pièce de résistance. We originally saw "Van Dominogh" on Gizmodo, and the recreation of Van Gogh's "The Starry Night" is worth watching.

FlippyCat's first attempt was ruined when a screw from his camera rig triggered an early fall. The second round took 11 hours and a whopping 7,067 dominoes. The entire process is documented in the stop-motion video above. FlippyCat previously achieved YouTube fame for his "Domona Lisa" in 2007, but this particular work really seems to solidify his mastery of the form, as the splayed dominoes are perfectly suited to Van Gogh's expressive, swirling strokes. (If this is getting you in the mood for some more Van Gogh ogling, check out his upcoming exhibition at the Denver Art Museum this October.)

We applaud you FlippyCat. And if you are taking suggestions for your next domino masterpiece, we would like to see Georges Seurat's "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte."

Readers, what would you like to see recreated through dominoes?
