Well, some bead crafts are small while others are... This was done by the Huichol Indians of west-central Mexico, known for their beadwork... Two families worked on it for 9,408 hours and used 2,270,000 glass beads in a traditional Huichol craftwork. It was on puplic display at the Denver airport thru Aug 31, 2012.
