In joyful celebration of the Bangla New Year, telecommunications company Airtel and leading Bangla newspaper Prothom-alo brought together five of Bangladesh’s leading senior artists along with 220 young artists and thousands of citizens of Dhaka, Bangladesh’s capital, to create the world’s largest Alpona, an art form created by hand, across the full stretch of the 1-kilometer Manik Mia Avenue.

The colorful Indian folk art was drawn from 12 a.m. until 6 a.m. of April 13th and covered over 260,000 square feet, making it a strong contender for a slot in the Guinness Book of World Records. Watch the time-lapse video of the creation of the Alpona below:
