Check out the video below that shows an impressive mosaic made by thousands of cups filled with rain water. The rain water was colored with vegetable dye to accomplish the final image of a fetus in the maternal womb that stretches 3,600 square feet and 5.2 km long.

This work of art was made by the artist Belo to create awareness about the clean water crisis. Here are some interesting facts about the mosaic by the numbers:

-66,000 biodegradable cups

-15,000 liters of colored rainwater 

-1 kg of vegetable dye

-100 volunteers

-62 hours of work
