CHILDREN from Humenné presented their mothers with a record gift on Mothers’ Day - a huge heart made up of 3,325 pupils from all Humenné’s primary schools, formed at the football playground at the Primary School in Hrnčiarska Street, the Pravda daily wrote.

“One year ago, we made the silhouette of a heart in the same way; this year, we decided to fill it,” Rudolf Klikušovksý, the school’s headmaster, said.

All the children came to the playground in white tee-shirts. It took them about 15 minutes to “fill” the heart in the middle of the playground.

“It took 500 children to form the outline, and now there were many more of them,” the headmaster added. The image measured 70 x 70 metres. “It may be the biggest living heart that was ever created in the world,” he suggested.

The giant live heart was photographed from a rented aeroplane. Viera Hovancová, the school’s vice-headmaster, confirmed that they would try to confirm the heart as the Slovak record in a new category – the largest man-made figure.
