Connor Wright, a senior at St. Louis' Priory school, decided to build a massive mural to Cardinals great Stan Musial.

This endeavor all along had been intended to be Wright’s senior thesis project at his school.

The mural is over 200 square feet and used 5,980 toys.

According to STLToday: For several weeks Wright precisely twisted and turned each cube so each had a unique face with the needed nine dots of color in the right position to match the mural of Musial he designed on a computer.

Wright laid out the pieces on his parent's dining room floor but didn't know the scope of the project until he was stepping off the scaffolding and able to truly see it.

Unveiled in a ceremony on Oct. 6, the 17-by-12-foot mural will remain on display indefinitely on the vast wall above the landing of a stairwell leading up to the Cardinals Nation dining area and AT&T Rooftop complex.
