Inspired by the motto of the United States—E Pluribus Unum or Out of Many, One—Cuban-American artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada has created a monumental landscape portrait on the National Mall in Washington DC. The portrait image is a composite highlighting the diversity of America. The enormous portrait, visible from space, is composed of 2,000 tons of sand, 800 tons of soil and 10,000 wooden pegs.
