Its amazing to see how artists portray their skills in ways to create their own identity and popularity. In Sydney an artist and his assistants 'paint' the Mona Lisa using 3,604 cups of coffee blended with different amount of milk to create the colour tones. It was a project organized at Rocks Aroma Festivals in Sydney, Australia and was seen by 130,000 people who attended the one-day coffee lovers event.
The painting, measuring 20 feet high and 13 feet wide took a team of eight people three hours to complete.
