The Largest Mona Lisa in the World

Under the direction of artist Katy Webster, children painted an enormous copy of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa at a shopping mall in Wales:

Dozens of adults from community groups and youngsters from Wrexham schools coloured 82 vinyl tiles to make the paint-by-numbers portrait.

It is on show at Eagles Meadow, and will be used to raise money for the children’s hospice charity Hope House.

At 17.5m across, and covering 240 sqm, it is some 50 times the original.
