CMA CGM MagellanThe container ship CMA CGM Magellan, 150,269gt, has been transformed into a gigantic work of art by a world-renowned artist, JR.

The artist worked on the collage of 151 containers and these were used as pixels so that once loaded onto the ship, they became a work of art.

The picture that was assembled on the ship is the eyes of Elizabeth, a Kenyan woman living in the Kibera slums, in Nairobi.

CMA CGM said she is one of the key persons in her community. In July, the ship left northern Europe for the Far East on her scheduled service.
