The province of Misiones has become the undisputed winner of the Guinness Record for the World's Longest Mural. And not only that! But he has earned an extra certification from the prestigious Guinness World Records for the longest pencil-painted mural on the planet. Two prizes in one. How are you doing?
This large mural has 4 linear kilometers of extension, that is, 40 blocks! and about 4 thousand square meters . The work was done on the wall of the center of the border , on the south coast of the city of Posadas . It is divided into two parts, a painted sector and the other made in pencil. Guess what? They both beat Guinness Record.
One of the most interesting attractions of the missionary mural, beyond its extension, is the gigantic collective intervention of artists from all over the region . Artists from Misiones, Formosa, Jujuy, La Pampa, Buenos Aires, Cordoba, San Luis and Peru, Bolivia and Paraguay worked for 15 days.
The project, in charge of the professor and plastic artist Valeria Garibotti, sought to capture the identity of this border land and fraternity between countries. The images shown are related to missionary culture. But also with traditions from all over the border region such as the mate, the fisherman, the taskman and the jungle.
While the scribes of the Guinness Record walked through the 4,000 square meter painting and the smallest pencil painting, those of the red earth were expecting. What would they decide? Tension in the provincial capital grew as world record specialists made their scores. With a drum roll, the verdict finally reached the ears of all the missionaries . Winners!
The merit of the award is due to the monumental work, which involved a series of complex techniques . First, paint the wall white to leave a solid background and thus be able to capture the design. Second, run the drawing only with graphite pencil and add shadows to generate perspectives and different color shades. Finally, as it is not a uniform wall, expert knowledge was required to calculate the exact measurement of the mural.
The dimensions of this ambitious mural surpassed those of the previous recorder in Poland , who held the record since 2018 with a work of art measuring 85,03 square meters.
