The Largest Human-Made Art on Earth

Take the huge dry lake bed. Choose a stick. Make the largest sand drawing on Earth.

Next on the list could be - aliens see it, make contact. Well, even without aliens, this art is more than mind-boggling in its scale. It's planet-altering.
]Jim Denevan made the world's largest freehand drawing a few weeks ago on a dry lake in Nevada. How big is it? Three mile across, which took 100 miles of walking to draw the pattern:

Made by a single person... gone the next week

Jim says: "It is really really big. My first attempt at a place so large. I think it represents about seven or eight days of walking."

This photo is from 13,000 feet above. Jim is a small speck in center...

His bus is also lost in the landscape (Jim's crew is taking a driving tour of the completed drawing) -

Preparations and artist's custom bus:

where haute cuisine is served in the middle of wild natural environment, such as a country field, a rocky strewn coast, or a mountaintop.
