Marilyn Monroe recreated with 5000 coffee cups

Artists have created a massive image of Marilyn Monroe using more than 5,000 cups of coffee.

The team used the different shades of lattes, long blacks and flat whites to produced the caffeine-filled artwork at a coffee festival in Sydney.

Different drinks were carefully lined up in a 80 x 65 cup grid, to recreate the classic image of the Some Like It Hot star, in surprisingly good detail.

Organisers say they used milk and (where possible) coffee which was on its expiry date to produce the image, to cut down on wastage

And while it took several hours to finish, none of the coffee artists needed a break… that will be the 5,200 cups of coffee for you.
