Big Portrait of Martin Luther King – level 3

02-04-2018 15:00

Land artist Dario Gambarin created a new work in a field near Verona in northern Italy of a portrait of Martin Luther King which marks 50 years since his death.

Gambarin uses different kinds of tractors and various measures of plough to create his work. The 120-metre long face of the civil-rights activist took him seven hours to make, and he will erase it in a few days for farming.

The artist previously depicted well-known persons such as Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama and Pope Francis.

Difficult words: plough (a thing which a tractor pulls), civil-rights activist (a person who fights for the rights of people), depict (make a picture of).
