It Takes A City

You can find the world’s largest alpona in Dhaka, Bangladesh. A decorative art form practiced by women in Bengal, alpona resembles mehndi, but is reserved for floors and other various surfaces. Literally street art, this design was created last April to celebrate the coming of the Bengali New Year. 6 hours, 220 artists, and  3,600 liters of paint later, the 260,000 SF motif made its mark on history.
