The Pokémon Company and U.K. artist Quentin Devine created the world's largest Pokémon Trading Card as a mosaic. The mammoth undertaking measures 10 meters (33 feet) on its longest edge, seven meters (23 feet) wide. Overall its 71.54 square meters (770 square feet) and is comprised of 12,987 individual cards.
The picture itself is, of course, Pikachu, and replicates the original card's artwork drawn by GAME FREAK illustrator Ken Sugimori. The giant card was unveiled in Paris on Monday. Pokémon Trading Card producer Yūji Kitano and director Atsushi Nagashima posed with Devine to mark the event.
Devine has previously created a mosaic of the Mona LiSA from self portraits and the Queen of Britain from pennies.
