Measuring 224.12m2 (27.56m x 8.132m) and comprising 22,275 recyclable wooden mosaic blocks, the masterpiece that was completed by 80 people – contributing approximately 260 working hours over a period of 20 days – is on display across from the DSOA headquarters.

Dr Mohammed Al Zarooni, vice chairman and chief executive officer of DSOA, said: “We are thrilled to have earned our first Guinness World Records title, an achievement that will go down in our books as a key success story that pays homage to the glory of our leaders. Through this initiative, we hope to convey to future generations of citizens and residents what an exemplary leader Sheikh Zayed was and how his noble values helped shape the UAE of today.”

Since the announcement of 2018 as the Year of Zayed by the UAE leadership, DSOA has been hosting a series of initiatives showcasing Sheikh Zayed as one of the world’s greatest leaders and most inspirational figures. 

Dr Al Zarooni received the certificate of achievement from Samer Khallouf, head of the records management team at Guinness World Records for its Middle East and North Africa operation, in the presence of DSOA’s staff, business partners and members of Dubai Silicon Oasis community.
