The National Union of Eritrean Youth and Students (NUEYS) and the Eritrean Youth set the Guinness World Record for the Longest Painting in the World!
A 7.166Km long painting prepared by Eritrean youth and displayed across the Asha Golgol — Himbirti road depicting a “Pollution-free World” has set a new Guinness Record title as the world’s ‘Longest Painting’.
The record-breaking achievement of the painting, which was made possible through participation of 827 Eritrean children, has surpassed earlier record held by Mexico for 6 Km-long painting.
The Guinness Book of Records staff, in a letter it sent to the National Union of Eritrean Youth and Students (NUEYS), congratulated the participants of the artistic work and the Eritrean citizens.
