Flying Spaghetti Monster – Portrait from Self

All hail the glory of His noodlyness!
It's pasta all the way down.

Portrait from self.

His Deliciousness, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, made from His own body. An FSM portrait made from several kinds of pasta and lots of glue. (why yes, it did take longer than I thought!)

I hadn’t seen anybody do an FSM piece from dry pasta yet (my Google-Fu might be lacking though), and figured I’d rise to the occasion. Just to make sure I wasn’t completely wasting my time if unoriginal, I compensated by thoroughness and such.

Canvas size is 50x50cm.

More! more!

A close-up of His Noodly Appendage.

How?

Inspired/based on FSM artwork from Venganza.org (the website where the FSM first made himself known), and fan-made images from around the internet.

I first made a sketch of the outlines of His body on canvas, then glued over these lines with small pieces of broken spaghetti. The inner spaces (noodles, meatballs and eye stalks) were made dark with ink (to hide the gaps) before using several kinds of broken down pasta to further fill in His body. I finished up by filling in the eyes and background, hiding all mistakes beneath a thick carpet of pasta. Somehow I used a pound of sweet, sweet glue in the process.

In total 7 different kinds of pasta were used to create the piece. Spaghetti for the outlines, tagliatelle to fill in His noodly appendages, a bit of vermicelli on the eye-stalks, green & orange fusilli for His meaty balls and glass noodle on the eyeballs. The background is filled in with broken down lasagna Verde sheets on the bottom and ground up Chinese egg noodle on top.

Yummy.

When the war starts I'll have a couple of thousand extra calories hidden in plain sight.

      The making of the monster use of spaghetti, its is a really unique and innovative thing.

    May his Noodley Appendage Touch you!

      Thanks Jeff, Kye and others who commented. Fills the cockles of my heart it does!

      As for the Christmas cards, I’m always on favor of spreading the good word! By all means go ahead (But no selling of His Body!).

      You could take the wallpapers posted in the post below for a better resolution. Ramen

    That is marvelous. Do you have any wallpaper-sized versions, so as to spread His image across laptops and desktops the world over?

      He Len, Good Call.

      I uploaded some larger sizes for you. Unfortunately the sharpness in the source files is a bit… lacking.

      • Len croaked:

        In the largest version, the Self medium physically looks a bit dull. Being that it is a food product, have you applied any kind of fixative to it as a protectant? The glue alone won’t do it, I don’t think. Way back in my art classes, I remember using Krylon(?) for preserving media that easily deteriorates.

        • DHRECK wrote:

          Nope, I didn’t apply anything to preserve it yet. It may be an artifact from the dry pastas (some of which do shimmer under the light), and the truly staggering amount of glue.

    I wept with joy upon seeing this physical representation of His Noodly Goodness. Let the heathens have their Sistine Chapels and their Angkor Wats, Pastafarians have this magnificent image to view to inspire our contemplation and reflection. may you always be cradled in His Noodly Appendages!
