Obama portrait on Barcelona beach E-mail

Barcelona Obama on Google earth?

A Barcelona based artist, Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada created a gigantic face of Obama sculpted from gravel and sand in support of Barack Obama’s bid for the 2008 Presidency in November 2008. The piece was called “Expectation” and covered nearly 2.5 acres (1 hectare) of Barcelona beachfront in between the beach Levant and the Parc de Forum area. Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada hoped that it will be big enough to be seen on Google Earth. The artist worked free to create this impressive Big Barack and so did many volunteers.
