Super Mario Bros. gets the Bayeaux Tapestry treatment

The Normans may have been onto something with that big ol’ tapestry they knocked up, because one gamer has been sufficiently inspired to make a Mario-themed version.

This labour of love, a work-in-progress that will eventually end up measuring 620cm x 40cm, is by Norwegian Nintendo nut Elsa, and depicts the iconic World 1-1 level from Super Mario Bros. Yep, right down to the last pixel. A couple more pictures for you here, and tons more at Elsa’s blog:
