|Dramatic: Edgar Mueller lies on top of the cave scene he created on the pavement in London's Docklands|
A stretch of pavement in London has been transformed into a stunning cave scene by a renowned street artist.
Edgar Mueller, from Germany, chalked the 3D scene onto the street in the Docklands area as part of a summer festival in West India Quay.
Mr Mueller started work on the 100m sq drawing last week and put the finishing touches on it today.
He spent 15 hours a day on the piece, starting between 3am and 4am every day.
Describing the work, Mr Mueller told The Wharf: 'It's a cave scene. I got the idea three weeks ago when I was in China and spent a week visiting some natural caves. I just thought "Why don't I put a cave in London?"

'The idea is after a little earthquake this cave appears. It shouldn't be there and scientists say it is 10million years old. Maybe it's a series of different caves.'
He added: 'I think it's one of the best I've ever done.'
A specially-built lens allows people to look at the spot where the picture looks most 3D.
The owners of West India Quay, X-Leisure, are staging a month of entertainment, starting with an art week.
In the past, Mr Mueller has created a huge 3D Ice Age scene, a lava scene and a giant waterfall.
