Thursday Awesome: Cup of Joe (or Mona Lisa)

Talk about getting jazzed up on caffeine - at the Aroma Festival at The Rocks in Sydney, Australia (an annual coffee festival), organizers used 3,604 cups of coffee — four shades using different amounts of coffee and milk — to make an incredibly accurate replica of Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.

It measures an impressive 20 feet high and 13 feet wide and took a team of eight people three hours to complete. It was created for The Rocks Aroma Festival in Sydney, Australia, and seen by 130,000 people who attended the one-day coffee-lovers event.

At least those long hours put in by the artists of this piece were probably much more enjoyable with endless cups of java!
