Cayce Zavaglia's Photorealistic Embroidery Puts Grandma To Shame (PHOTOS)

We've seen our fair share of photorealistic excellence, whether gifted to us via pen, pencil or paintbrush. But never before have we seen such lifelike semblances from a needle and thread.

Cayce Zavaglia has been creating photorealistic portraits of her family, friends and fellow artists with incredible results. We love looking at the works from behind, where the back-stitches form intriguingly abstract faces.

Zavaglia's works will show with Lyons Wier Gallery at Art Miami this December.
