This impressive homage to the new U.S. president-elect is the work of talented Cuban-born American artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada, who sculpted this gigantic face of Barack Obama using gravel, sand and soil in Barcelona, where he now lives.
The massive portrait of Obama's face measures 445 feet long by 264 feet wide and covers nearly 1 hectare of Barcelona beachfront. The artwork used over 500 tons of donated materials.
The coloring is lovely, and the likeness to Barack Obama is truly incredible. This is my favorite piece of sand art ever!
