The image created by the final mosaic was selected from the thousands of submissions. Taken in 1926, it is a portrait of 17 year old Arthur James Bunce from Tipton in the Black Country, training as an amateur boxer.

Arthur had fourteen children and despite dying in 1987 at the age of 78, the photo continued to be an inspiration to his family and was sent into The Big Picture Project by his granddaughter Lucy, also from Tipton.
