ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – Just in time for playoffs, the St. Louis cardinals unveiled a new Stan Musial mosaic made entirely of Rubik’s cubes.
FOX2’s Patrick Clark was at Ballpark Village Tuesday as the mural was unveiled to the public.
Stan Musial is one of the most well known cardinal players in the team’s history.
So it’s fitting a pixelated version of Stan the Man will be keeping an eye on baseball fans in Ballpark Village.
Just outside the Cardinal Hall of Fame between the second and third floor of Cardinal Nation is the latest piece of Cardinal history.
It’s 5,980 Rubik’s cubes in this mural to the Cardinal Hall of Famer.
Connor Wright, an Eagle Scout and senior at St. Louis Priory School designed the 204 square foot mural. He spent 100 hours completing the design and another 100 building the mural; paying for the project by selling 23 hand drawn portraits which he’ll have to fulfill now that work on the mural is complete.
There are 53,820 dots on Connor’s mural of Musial.
Not only did he have to solve how to portray the cardinal great, but how to get those 5,980 cubes here to his home.
There weren’t enough Rubik’s cubes in the United States, so he worked with the company and they shipped them from China.
