The Amazing Largest Land Art Portrait in the UK

Cuban-American artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada and his team have completed the largest land art portrait in the United Kingdom. Entitled Wish,the artwork is a portrait of an anonymous Belfast child. This enormous 11 acre piece of land art has been years in the making, depicting a native child and the magnitude of a single wish. Phase 1 of the project consisted of Rodriguez-Gerada and his team of landscape architects utilizing the latest in GPS transponder technologies to lay out more than 30,000 wooden stakes to this gigantic plot of land. During phase 2, it began to get serious with the painstaking task of laying the ground work with more than 4,000 tons of topsoil, sand, grass and stone: roughly 8 million pounds of natural materials. The actual project labor was completed in just four weeks, and sits in the Titanic Quarter in the city of Belfast. The final work is visible by airplane and the highest points in Belfast until December 2013.
