Artist creates huge 11-acre portrait of child
"Wish" is a portrait of a 6-year-old girl carved into an 11-acre field in Northern Ireland. It took 30,000 wooden pegs, 2,000 tons of soil and 2,000 tons of sand for Cuban-American artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada to create the artwork.
The portrait took 18 months of planning and another month of construction to complete. It is best visible by plane or helipcopter and was for the opening of this year's Belfast Festival at Queens earlier this month.
