The UAE has set yet another Guinness World Record. The world’s largest ornamental bauble can now be found in Dubai Mall’s Star Atrium, where it will stay until the end of January 2019.

The award-winning decoration is 6.597 meters (21.8ft) tall, has a diameter of 4.689 meters (15.4ft) and weighs 1,100 kilograms.

The record-breaking ornament was reportedly flown into the country inside 12 crates and three containers, and took 15 people two nights to assemble.

Rebecca Jobo, Head of Dubai Mall, accepted the Guinness World Record award last week following an inspection from the famous world records book.

It is fitting for the largest bauble to hang in the Dubai Mall, since the mall was awarded the Guinness World Record for the largest shopping centre in the world with a total area of 1124000 square metres.

The UAE has been home to numerous amounts of Guinness World Records. Last year’s UAE National Day saw 4,000 schoolchildren come together to break the world record for the largest human image of a national waving flag.

2017 also saw the world record broken for the most nationalities attending one yoga class. 112 different nationalities all sat in one yoga class at The Retreat Palm Dubai McGallery by Sofitel.
