Although they didn't have the World Cup in mind when they first envisioned the project, the idea to paint the plane came from the artists themselves, said the twins in an interview with artnet.
The design theme the twins were tasked with were "Brazilianness, democracy and diversity."
The plane will be part of the GOL fleet for an additional two years after the World Cup.
More photos and a video of the twins at work on the plane can be seen on GOL's blog.
