The mosaic was created at Tel Aviv Port out of 6,000 paper cups of coffee, mixed with milk to varying degrees in order to make different shades of color.

The last cup was placed into the mosaic last night, breaking Jacobs’s own Guinness World Record, achieved for coffee mosaics of Nelson Mandela and Elvis Presley on other occasions. The area will be open to the public until Friday evening.
