Artist Filled 66,000 Cups With Water And Made The World’s Largest Artistic Mosaic

There is no shortage of ways for people to express themselves through art!

Whether that means painting a portrait, or writing a book – the possibilities are endless. As humans, we find ways to share our deepest thoughts with the world through our creations; it’s how we learn from each other.

To raise awareness among the general public about the global clean water crisis, the artist Belo created an image composed of 66,000 cups of colored rainwater simulating levels of impurities found in water all over the planet. This major work of 3,600 square feet, representing a fetus in the maternal womb, emphasizes the necessity of water, even before birth, for each living person.
