The Wave Gets Chopped

Djuro Siroglavic - A piece of The Wave (2007)"Never mind the quality; feel the width." Okay, mathematicians, work this one out. The world's largest painting was four miles long, seven feet high and covered 13,000 square meters of canvas. You see what I mean about those blasted Euro thingies. They get in everywhere. So, 4 miles x 7' = 13,000 square meters. Got that? Sure? Anyway it doesn't matter now because the stupid thing is being cut up and sold in pieces. Croatian Djuro Siroglavic got fed up with tripping over his monstrous, 6-tonne The Wave, which took him and two assistants five months to paint, so he decided to give it the chop to raise money for children's charities. Worthy conclusion, daft concept.
