Exploring the Rhythms of Life; massive artwork in Google Earth

We’ve shown you a variety of geoglyphs in Google Earth in the past, such as new ones being discovered as a result of deforestation in the Amazon.
Over the past 13 years sculptor Andrew Rogers, with the help of over 6,700 volunteers, has created 47 structures in 13 different countries.

The structures are large enough to be seen using Google Earth, which is why Andrew put together a Google Earth tour to show them all off. You can download the tour here and see all of his great works of art. One great feature of the tour is that it is designed to automatically switch to historical imagery when it provides a better view of the art work, showing each piece off in the best possible imagery.
For those that would rather not load the tour file, here is a video to show everything you’ll want to see.
