Mona Lisa – one of the world’s most famous paintings, has been recreated using 3604 cups of coffee and 564 pints of milk! Read the facts!

This artwork took eight fantastic people three hours to complete and it measures six meters high and four meters wide.

The different shades were created by varying amounts of milk added to the coffee to create the different sepia shades of the painting.

Coffee Lisa was created for The Rocks Aroma Festival in Sydney, Australia and was seen by over 130,000 people who attended the “one-day coffee-lovers” event.

Mona Lisa, also known as La Gioconda, is the 16th Century portrait painted in oil by Leonardo Da Vinci during the Italian Renaissance.

The work is owned by the French government and hangs in the Musee du Louvre in Paris, France, with the title Portrait of Lisa Gherardini, wife of Francesco del Giocondo.

It measures 77×53 centimeters and has prompted debate for years over the reason for her famously enigmatic smile.

It was only a matter of time before this was done really, she’s been recreated from most other things like toast, ASCII, a garden lawn and even from Lego!
