We have all seen those pavement artists on their knees with boxes and boxes of chalk beavering away to produce reproductions of famous paintings. And we throw a few coppers into their hats in appreciation of their efforts and as a thank you for brightening up our day.
But this is a piece of pavement art with a difference....
The image comprises 3,604 cups of café con leche each cup with a different amount of milk in the coffee thus providing the variations in colour to produce the illusion of the Mona Lisa.
OK it was a publicity stunt for a coffee maker in Chinchiná, Colombia but no less spectacular for that.
