The Dubai Mall has broken the Guinness World Record for the largest festive ornament, comprising a giant Christmas bauble located in the mall's Star Atrium.
Designed by American company Venue Arts, the metallic bauble weighs 1,100 kilogrrams and measures almost 6.597 metres in height and 4.689 metres in width.
Comprising a total of five giant ornaments, the bespoke pieces were designed especially for Dubai Mall's festive campaign, and took two days to assemble and hoist.
The Dubai Mall last year revealed the world’s largest OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) screen at the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, through a partnership between Emaar Entertainment and electronics company LG.
The screen measured 7,639.03 sq ft with a resolution of 1,700,352,000 pixels.
