Wall of Rubik’s Cubes is a world record with a twist

For centuries the Great Wall Of China has stood as a wonder of the world – but now it has a little competition.

A record-breaking mosaic has been made from 85,794 Rubik’s Cubes.

Each was individually hand twisted and placed into a 67m (220ft) long and 4m (13ft) tall display showing the Macau skyline.

It has made it into the Guinness World Records as the ‘largest Rubik’s Cube mosaic ever created’.

The mosaic was designed by Toronto-based Cube Works Studio and took 90 days from design to completion.

Designer Josh Chalom, who has been creating art using Rubik’s Cubes for five years, worked with graphic architect Nick Hall, who made the blueprints for the designs.

Mr Chalom said he was inspired by the ‘brilliant architecture’ in China.

He added: ‘I wanted to create something monumental and breathtaking – the reaction that we've had from people has been amazing.’
