Top 8 World’s Largest Objects
The authors of the following exquisitely large objects simply wanted to beat world records or get attention from curious people. Whether for artistic reasons or simply because they wanted to push their own limits, the creators of the world’s largest objects reached their goal. We are not quite sure why would you need a gigantic pencil or a human size bottle of wine, but we know that they are fun and slightly unpractical.
#1. World’s largest book
The award for largest published book goes to an author and scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Michael Hawley. Yes, he actually published this monster book. The 60 kilo book is 152 by 213 cm, has 112 pages, and almost 4 liters of ink were used for its printing. The entire cost for “Bhutan: A Visual Odyssey across the Kingdom” was 2000 dollars. Well, for sure you can’t carry it anywhere with you, or if you really must, you would certainly need some help to do it.
#2. World’s largest motorcycle

#3. World’s largest bottle of wine
This huge bottle of 490 liter Grande Cuvee TBA NV No.7 2005 comes from the Austrian wine maker Kracher, and was presented in Rehetobel, Switzerland.

Just for comparison you will need 640 regular bottles of wine to fill the biggest wine bottel to the top.
#4. World’s largest pencil
This huge, or dare we say monster pencil, weights 9752 kilos, and for sure isn’t good for writing unless you are a giant. It stretches to 23 meters and it is a great copy of the famous yellow No.2 model. The enormous pencil was built in New York by Ashrita Furman with the help of many talented craftsmen. Why? Oh well, for fun probably…
#5. World’s largest piñata

If by any case you would want to have this football table at home you will have to transfer it on 6 different flight cases.
