People Recreate Van Gogh's 'Starry Night' in Embroidery, Petri Dishes

It seems like everybody is recreating Van Gogh paintings out of unusual materials these days. Artist Stan Herd recently finished planting an entire field to resemble the Dutch Master's "Olive Trees," and now an embroidery artist and a microbiologist have independently had the idea to do starry night, out of embroidery and bacteria, respectively. The embroidery is the much more faithful interpretation, but the bacteria is probably even more impressive, or, at least, more difficult to imagine how it was done.
