Remembering the world’s largest pencil

In August 2007, shortly before his passing on October 11, Sri Chinmoy visited the world’s largest pencil that had been built by Ashrita Furman and friends in his honor. This enlarged video version shows the whole procedure from finishing the pencil until erecting it with the help of a crane in Jamaica, Queens, NY. In the meantime the pencil has been transported to the St. Louis City Museum and is included in its permanent exhibition of unusual objects. Filmed by kedarvideo, Switzerland.
