JFK’s face plowed into an Italian field as art
Faces in fields is his thing: The artist has also given similar treatment to Pope Francis and Barack Obama.
Think you’ve seen every possible tribute to JFK leading up to the 50th anniversary of his assassination? Think again.
A man near Verona, Italy, took the event’s commemoration to an entirely new level with a gigantic 492-foot-wide portrait of the president mowed into a field. According to the AP, the artist’s name is Dario Gambarin and JFK is not his first foray into plowing famous faces. Gambarin has also completed plowed portraits of Pope Francis and President Barack Obama.
The portrait took the artist five hours to complete and includes the words ”Ich bin ein Berliner” inscribed next to it. The quote comes from Kennedy’s June 26, 1963 West Berlin Speech.
