Venice, September 3 - Call it the Field of Francis:
an artist has carved an enormous portrait of Pope Francis across
a plowed field of land in northeastern Italy near the city of
Verona.
The portrait, titled "Love Liberates" is carved out of a
25,000-square-meter field by artist Dario Gambarin, known for
his works of art created on large spaces.
Gambarin, who used a tractor but designed the portrait
'free hand' - with no points of reference on the ground – said
he was inspired by Francis's efforts for peace.
"There are millions of people in the world, fascinated...by
Pope Francis," explained Gambarin, whose previous field works
have included United States President Barack Obama and
footballer Mario Balotelli.
"His words, simple and direct, have no need of
interpretation".
The artist acknowledged his portrait can only be seen from
the air.
"But if we can raise our hearts even more, in addition to
the angels, we will be able to see him".
