Barack Obama is used to having his picture taken, but something he is probably less accustomed to is having his image carved out in grass by a tractor. This aerial photograph shows how the US President's face now adorns an area of countryside near Verona in Northern Italy, as the result of artist Dario Gambarin's most recent project. The portrait, accompanied by the words, "The Hope is in the Land", covers an area of 27,000 square meters and was created during a 90 minute performance by the Italian on July 5 2009. The release of the image coincides with Obama's visit to Italy for the G-8 summit in L'Aquila.
