Photo detail

Earthwork artist Stan Herd plows a two-acre portrait of Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid al-Maktoum, of the United Arab Emirates, who died in January. The artwork, just outside of Lawrence, was created by the manipulation of soybean stubble and plowed earth with the addition of crushed limestone, wood chips and sunflower seeds.
