Artist Uses Tractor to Create Jesus Picture

An Italian land artist has created a 24,000 square meter image of Christ in a field. Dario Gambarin prepared the huge artwork using a tractor – and achieved different depths and colors with the help of a rotating harrow and a plough. White spray paint and nylon cloth were used for his eyes.

The piece, entitled Suffering Christ, is intended to show the “difficult moment faced by humanity” – and commemorates the Catholic Church’s Jubilee of Mercy event, which begins next Tuesday. It took many days for Mr Gambarin to complete the portrait in Verona, which can only be fully appreciated from the skies.
