Tirana, Albania, September 4, 2008--A man inspects the world's largest cork mosaic, "Romeo With a Crown of Grapes Playing the Guitar While Dancing With the Sea and the Sun."

Saimir Strati glued 229,764 corks on a 42-by-23-foot (12.9-by-7.1-meter) plastic banner to make the mosaic, working 14-hour days for 28 days to complete it.

"A mosaic requires you to work for a long time and keep the emotion alive," he told the Reuters news agency.
