An Italian artist recently made a stunning image of Jesus in a field, using a tractor and a plough to create the impressive details.

Dario Gambarin, who also used white paint and cloth to make Jesus' eyes, created the crop circle in Verona, Italy, titling it, "Suffering Christ," in an effort to commemorate the Catholic Church's Jubilee Year, Sky News reported.

The 258,333 square-foot design is intended to show the "difficult moment faced by humanity," the artist said.

Gambarin, a land artist, has made a name for himself with similar depictions of Barack Obama, Nelson Mandela, John F. Kennedy, Pope Benedict XVI, Mickey Mouse and Fidel Castro, among others.

His Jesus portrait — like the others — can only fully be appreciated from the skies, according to Christian Today.

As TheBlaze previously reported, the Jubilee Year, which begins next Tuesday, is a time period during which certain sins can be forgiven.

Pope Francis recently announced that abortion will be covered during this time — which concludes in November 2016 — making it easier for women seeking forgiveness for to do so through a priest, rather than entering a complex system that involves bishops, priests and experts.

Jubilee Years have unfolded in the Catholic faith every 25 to 50 years since the year 1,300, according to the National Catholic Reporter.
