The world’s largest stamp portrait of Queen Elizabeth II has been unveiled at Whiteleys shopping centre in west London to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.
Renowned pop artist Peter Mason used 30,000 postage stamps to create the 20ft artwork.
On display until August 28, the artwork uses recycled stamps as pixels in a larger image and took more than 400 hours to complete.
Mason has previously produced portraits of celebrities and politicians including Sir Cliff Richard, Simon Cowell and Margaret Thatcher.
