We thought these 2 finger paintings were pretty amazing and decided to share them with you. What’s cool about them is, that there were more than just 10 fingers painting on these canvases. We love seeing such large projects like this and throwing in the social awareness aspect makes it even better.

This first one appears to hold the Guinnes World Record for Largest Finger Painting in the world and was completed in Hong Kong, China on November, 26, 2009. The participants were 3, 242 primary and secondary school students. For those that are counting, that’s 32,420 fingers (or 25,936 fingers and 6,484 thumbs). The painting event was put together by the Organising Committee of Anti Youth Drug Abuse Campaign. The painting was created by combining individually-painted pieces of canvas. The painting contains the slogan “Not Now, Not Ever, Say No to Drugs” in Chinese and English. It measured approximately 22,619 square feet.

This second one was done around the same time, but was completed in Ahmedabad, India on Thursday, December 3, 2009. The participants for this painting consisted of over 200 people with physical challenges and was done to mark International Day of Persons with Disabilities. That’s over 2,000 fingers (or 1600 fingers and 400 thumbs). Amazing!
