What happens when you combine Italian fine art with materials found at the sea side?
The answer is simple, of course: Botticelli's 'The Birth of Venus', made out of decorated chip forks.
The idea came from the Ticket team at City College Norwich, which helps young people get into work.
The aim of the project was to create a show piece for the Royal Norfolk Show, which combined team work the original thinking, and creativity.
So the team have decorated 3,608 chip forks which correspond to a numbered space on the canvas. When all of the chip forks are placed, the art will reveal itself.

Jim Goreham is the course director at the college, and said: 'Myself and one of the other members of staff did the counting to take the pressure off the students, but they've done everything else themselves, from the decorating to adding tape to the chip forks.
'It's been fantastic for us to see the leaders come forward and the students work as a team, we can't wait to see the art completed.'
