A Christmas bauble weighing more than 1,000 kg has been hung up in The Dubai Mall.

The Dubai Mall, the world’s Largest shopping centre (total area) which covers 1,124,000 m² (12.1 million ft²), is the main destination for shopping and entertainment in the United Arab Emirates and has now added the Guinness World Records title for the Largest Christmas bauble ornament.


The metallic ornament weighing 1,100 kg and measuring 4.68 m (15 ft 4 in) in diameter was designed by American firm Venus Arts, and took two days to be assembled in the mall’s Star Atrium area.

This imposing creation has been astounding visitors with its sheer size, creating a must-see Instagram moment for everyone to enjoy.”    


The record was verified by a Guinness World Records adjudicator and the certificate was presented with the attendance of the general manager of the mall.
