The wider view: Liverpool City as you've never seen it before

This is the most detailed landscape picture ever painted - and it has taken over 24,000 hours of painstaking work over three years so far, with another eight weeks to go until it is finished.

Called Liverpool Cityscape 2008, it measures 16ft by 8ft, takes in five square miles of the city from a vantage point 1,500ft above the River Mersey, and is entirely spray-painted.

To make sure the landscape is as accurate as possible, over 3,000 reference photographs were taken and input was asked from architects, historians and local people.
