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.

Elaine Kelly, from event organisers the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority, was delighted with the result.

It measures 20 feet high and 13 feet wide and took a team of eight people three hours to complete. The different colours were created by adding no, little or lots of milk to each cup of black coffee. Each coffee cup was filled with varying amounts of milk to create the different sepia shades of the painting.

“Once we had the idea of creating an image out of coffee cups we searched for something iconic to reproduce – and opted for the most iconic painting in history."
