Sky News, meantime, has this:

An Italian land artist has created a 24,000 square metre image of Christ in a field.

Dario Gambarin prepared the huge artwork using a tractor – and achieved different depths and colours with the help of a rotating harrow and a plough. White spray paint and nylon cloth were used for his eyes. The piece, entitled Suffering Christ, is intended to show the “difficult moment faced by humanity” – and commemorates the Catholic Church’s Jubilee of Mercy event.
