It is Wednesday again, so it's BUTTON DAY on my blog !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This Button Wednesday is about World's Largest Button Mosaic according to Guinness World Records. They state: "The largest button mosaic measures 720 ft² (66.89 m²), containes 296,981 buttons and was made at Maritime Square, Tsing Yi District, Hong Kong, for the "Springroll • Love • Mosaic" project between 23 and 28 July 2006." I found that intriguing and searched for the mosaic on the net, and found some great pictures of it on Flickr.
Tsing Yi is an island in the urban area of Hong Kong, to the northwest of Hong Kong Island and south of Tsuen Wan. The island has extended drastically by reclamation along almost all its natural shore. Three major bays or harbours in the northeast have been completely reclaimed for new towns. Tsing Yi means "dark clothes", but is also a kind of fish, probably blackspot tusk fish, once abundant in nearby waters. People named the island after the fish. So, that's where the fish are coming from in the Maritime Square shopping mall.
I would love to see this mosaic in real life !!
