  • World's-largest-mosaic.jpg
    A load of old Mardi Gras beads were given a new purpose in life, thanks to Stephan Wanger. The artist hand recycler has set out to build the largest mosaic ever created from Mardi Gras beads, 97% of which are recycled. The piece of art, known as the Skyline will be shown off to the world at JW Marriott in New Orleans on the 27th of April this year. Wanger’s mosaic includes a view from the West Bank towards downtown New Orleans, complete with the Natchez steamboat, a cruise ship, a tall ship and a pelican, a busy river scene with the New Orleans skyline behind. Also, this artwork will carry the signatures of people that the artist will bead out.

    Wanger hopes this artwork is noticed by the Guinness World Records too. We wish him luck with that and hope he comes up with a few more recycled masterpieces.
