An Italian land artist has used his tractor to create a huge work of art depicting the trophy awarded to Germany for winning the World Cup.

Dario Gambarin, a land artist who lives near Verona in northern Italy, carved up 24-thousand square meters of field to sketch out the FIFA trophy.

The picture of the trophy is 160 meters long (174 yards).

Gambarin has created other famous artworks with his tractor, including portraits of Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama and Pope Francis.

Using a medium-sized red tractor, Gambarin drove back and forth, twisting and turning around the field to create a replica of the trophy.

Piles of dirt were pushed up and helped form the lines in the field depicting the trophy and the letters G-E-R-M-A-N-Y.

Germany won the World Cup in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday, beating Argentina 1-0 in the final.

It's the fourth time Germany has won the World Cup and the first time in 24 years.
