Video: Large sand painting of Sheikh Zayed created in the desert

Canadian-born artist Sylvain Tremblay set out to paint a massive 10.5 metres by 12 metres portrait of Sheikh Zayed by throwing sand from a hot air balloon tethered 15 metres above the ground, but foul weather forced him to complete the painting on the ground using sand from different parts of the country.
