Big Portrait of Martin Luther King – level 2

02-04-2018 15:00

Land artist Dario Gambarin created a new work in a field in Italy of a 120-metre long portrait of Martin Luther King.

The portrait marks 50 years since his death. It took the artist seven hours to make. He uses different kinds of tractors and ploughs to create his work.

In a few days, he will erase the picture for farming. The artist also did portraits of Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama and Pope Francis.

Difficult words: mark (celebrate, remember an important day), plough (a thing which a tractor pulls), erase (remove, delete).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
