Mona Lisa recreated using coffee

One of the world’s most famous paintings, Mona Lisa, has been recreated using coffee and milk.

3,604 cups of coffee and 564 pints of milk were used to create the famous portrait. To achieve the different colours, various amounts of milk or none at all were added to each cup of black coffee. Eight people took three hours to finish the impressive portrait which stands at 20 feet high and 13 feet wide.

The portrait was created for the Rocks Aroma Festival in Sydney, Australia and was seen by 130,000 people who attended the coffee-lovers event.

Mona Lisa, also known as La Gioconda, is a 16th century oil painting by Leonardo Da Vinci and is well known for the mystery surrounding the subject’s sly smile.
