Artist Marco Figgen poses with his 1.10-metre-long (3.6-foot-long) beard, which he uses to paint, at his studio in Pattaya City, in Thailand’s Chonburi province, nearly 110 km (69 miles) east of Bangkok, February 3, 2006. The 51-year-old German citizen, who first came to Thailand nine years ago, describes his unique paint brush as an extension of his soul, and has been growing his beard for 13 years.

Figgen, no relation to rising superstar Chone Figgens, said he would bypass Marlins spring training camp to concentrate on his art.
