In a grounbreaking feat 11 people took 400 hours to recreate The Hand of God out of Rubik's Cubes.
Most daunting of all is the fact that each cube had to be adjusted so that the correct colours were visible for use in the picture. Creative director of the project Josh Chalom is hoping to recreate the entire roof of the Chapel, an undertaking that will require 250,000 cubes.
The Hand of God took more than 400 hours to make by a dedicated team of 11 puzzle fans. The team had to individually adjust each Rubik's cube by hand to give it the exact colours required to recreate the masterpiece.

Nice piece of artwork. Man listen to you all, what if all artists had the same attitude as you. There would be No Mona Lisa, Sistine Chapel, Pieta, No Statue of Liberty, no Alex Grey, Picasso, Van Gogh... you get the picture? Basically no Culture what so ever... Because why stop with art? What the point to music? Think Mozart came up with his concerts over night? How can you sing, paint, draw, act, scuplt, or create anything when there are people suffering in the world? There will always be suffering. And many artist use their skills to bring awarness to issues.... perhaps you are aware of a p... [More]

The least they could have done for the article was get a decent photo of the entire work. The author blew it on that point.
