BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND — Huge land art is being unveiled in Belfast, Northern Ireland. A team of volunteers used thousands of pegs, soil and sand to make the 11-acre portrait.

The picture of a six-year-old girl was made to celebrate the Belfast Festival, which opened last week.

In all, it took 18-months of planning and then the team completed it in about a month.

It’s entitled “Wish.” Rodriguez-Gerada said the land art, which was put together with the help of an army of local volunteer, is the largest he has ever produced.
