The face you can see from space

A giant portrait made from different coloured earth and sand has been created on the National Mall in Washington, USA.

The portrait is so big it can even be seen from space.

It was commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery and created by international artist Jorge Rodriguez Gerada who's done similar projects in Belfast and Barcelona.
