As noted in the full write-up on the front page, this is 16 32x32 baseplates wide and 12 high. This is a little over 13 feet wide by 10 feet high (4 meters wide by 3 m high). If you click through the link you can see WIP shots that include people, so you can get a sense of the scale.
Man, the time and patience to set down every little piece in the right spot is incredible! Phew... must have gotten a bit tiring near the end.
Again, as noted in the full write-up on the front page, this was a group participation mosaic at a show over ten days. People who came to the exhibition could put together 32x32 baseplates (using 2x2 plates), which then got put together to make the whole thing. Over 300 people got involved, making 196 separate 32x32 mosaics.
The real tedious part had to be the Comunidade 0937 members who came up with the design, printed out 196 different instruction pages, and made sure they had enough pieces for the whole thing. This used 49,152 2x2 plates in what looks like 9 different colors.
