If you’re in Belfast before December, you might want to consider a helicopter ride.

That’s the only way you’ll truly able to appreciate a huge artwork that’s sitting in the city’s Titanic quarter.

The artwork, titled “Wish,” shows the face of an anonymous six-year-old local Belfast girl.

It was created by Cuban-American artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada out of 2,000 tonnes of sand, 2,000 tonnes of soil and some 30,000 wooden pegs.


Of course, Belfast isn’t exactly know for its skyscrapers — the Belfast Telegraph reports that it is best seen by “helicopter, drone or when on a plane arriving into the city.”

This video shows what the artwork looks at from a low level, before rising up to reveal the full image:

It reportedly took 18 months to complete the 11 acre artwork, which was commissioned for the The Ulster Bank Belfast Festival.

“Belfast is an amazing city,” Rodriguez-Gerada told the Belfast Telegraph. “What I wanted to do was make a universal statement, which would go beyond Belfast.”
