It Took 13 Tons Of Candy To Make This Mosaic, But The Reason Behind It Is Even Sweeter Than The Artwork Itself

*BRB, having a sugar rush.*

A 607-foot-long mosaic made entirely of 13 tons of colorful candy has spread across one of the main streets in Chengdu, China.

The sugary installation by graphic design duo Craig & Karl, titled "Sweet As One," was created to mark the Chinese New Year celebration.

It took five days and required the work of more than 2,000 volunteers to finish the entire piece.

The installation was quickly dubbed the "world's largest candy carpet" which makes complete sense as the entire puzzle takes up 14,000 square feet!

Aside from being a sweet feast for the eyes, the public installation also serves a worthy cause: to help raise awareness of underprivileged children in rural areas.

According to the curating agency AllRightsReserved, the organizers will donate 15,000 meals along with all the candy to families in need.

Watch this video to see the mesmerizing creation process of this "candy carpet" and find out more about the project.
