Yesterday we talked about large artwork using GPS tracks. Although the artists did travel to the locations involved in their artwork, the record they left, and thus the actual art, was digital rather than physical.
There are, however, some very big works of art that are visible in Google Earth. Here are a few of them.
Desert Breath by D.A.S.T Arteam.
This is the smallest and oldest, but has lasted well and can be seen in both current imagery as well as historical imagery. Read more about it in this post
Mundi Man or Eldee Man by Ando
Drawn in the Mundi Mundi Plains in Australia using a tractor, this can be seen in Google Earth historical imagery from 2002. Read more about it here.
Black Rock Desert by Jim Denevan
Drawn in the Black Rock Desert using trucks and GPS near the location of the Burning Man festival in Nevada. This is the largest of the three. It is visible in historical imagery from September 2010. Read more about it here.

Do our readers know of any other artwork at this scale visible in Google Earth?
