Italian artist, Dario Gambarin, has spent six hours creating a giant portrait of Pope Francis in a field near the city of Verona.
The 100 metre-wide picture entitled “Love Liberates” was revealed on Monday just a few days before a day of fasting and prayer for peace in Syria called by the pontiff.
Over the past few years, Gambarin has created giant images of other well-known faces such as U.S. President Barack Obama.
Former South African President Nelson Mandela and cartoon favourite Mickey Mouse have also been recreated.
Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” was produced and like the rest of the artist’s works can only be appreciated from the air.
Gambarin’s creations are deleted just a few days after their completion so that the field can be used for its normal purpose, growing crops.
