Art knows no boundaries. This also applies in a large extent to what can be used to create art.
The artist Belo uses cups filled with coloured rainwater. He then places them so that they form an image.
Belo makes art with meaning. The water project is an attempt to increase the focus on global water shortage and the pollution of millions of people's drinking water.
It took the artist and the 100 volunteers, 62 hours to create the artwork.
If Belo had put the cups in a row, they would form a line which would have stretched over 5.2 kilometers.
All 66,000 cups are made of biodegradable material.
This major work of 3,600 square feet, representing a fetus in the maternal womb, emphasizes the necessity of water, even before birth, for each living person.
