Italian artist creates Vladimir Putin portrait using a tractor

Look out below!

An Italian artist has created a huge portrait of Russian President Vladimir Putin with the help of a tractor.  

Dario Gambarin transformed a field near Verona, Italy, ahead of this week's Group of 20 (G-20) summit in Hamburg, Germany. Putin is expected to meet with President Donald Trump at the summit.  

The 443-foot wide Putin portrait can only be properly viewed from above due to its scale.

Gambarin created similar land portraits of Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton during the U.S. presidential race last year. He's previously created land portraits of Pope Francis and Jesus, among others. 

The artist says he doesn't measure fields before he starts driving, but creates his giant images with a good eye and tractor skills.

Gambarin limits his creations to the brief period between the harvest of one crop and the planting of the next - which means that Putin's portrait will be cut down after a few days.
