An Indiana high school student’s art project is being shared all over the United States on social media.
Jacob Feazel, a senior at Maconaquah High School in Bunker Hill, spray-painted 4,466 toy soldiers red, white and blue.
Then, he meticulously glued them to a four-by-six-foot piece of plywood over a span of 11 days.
He explained that to make them stick, he had to scrape the paint off the bottom of each one.
Jacob’s proud mom posted the photos on Facebook last week and they’ve been shared more than 250,000 times!
People offered to buy the piece, but Jacob turned them down, saying he just wants an A for his efforts.
He also plans to enter the work of art in a scholarship competition.
Jacob said he created the piece to honor the men and women of the U.S. military who”make the U.S. free“.
