Coffee beans are usually ground for making everyone's favorite morning drink. But they can also be put to other uses. In Russia, one million coffee beans are being used to make a giant painting. The art piece has even been registered in the Russia's Book of Records as the world's biggest.

The picture, showing a face of a woman and a cup of coffee, was exhibited in Russia's Gorky Park in Moscow. The artist together with several assistants worked 10 days to create the picture measuring 30 square metres.

The editor-in-chief of Russia's Book of Records measured the painting and registered it as the biggest in the world. The previous one was made in Albania, which was 25 square meters. The creators of the painting said they had already applied to the Guinness Book of Records to register their achievement.
