Europe’s largest mural painting — the size of four football pitches — has been unveiled in Paris, but you won’t be able to see it from the ground.

The artwork by French duo Ella & Pitr is located on the rooftop of Pavillion 3 in the Parc des Expositions, in south-west Paris.

 Measuring 2.3 acres, and beating Ella & Pitr’s previous record for the largest fresco in Europe, it will only be visible from the rooftop of the nearby Pavillion 7 or with a drone.

Depicting an elderly woman looking pensive and leaning on the ring road, it took ten days to complete and several hundred litres of paint which were mostly hand-sprayed.
