Tributes from around the world poured in for Messi but there has been another more unusual tribute.

An Argentine farmer, Maximiliano Spinazze, spent his time creating an intricate design of Messi’s face in his cornfield.

Carlos Faricelli helped design the image and stated that he used coding for the machines

“I had the idea to make a code that goes in the seeders with Messi’s face as a tribute.” he said.

“Using geocoding tools, the machinery knows how much seed per square meter it has to put in certain places to create the contrast for different parts of Messi’s face.

“So when this corn grows and an aerial shot is taken, where the plants are closer together and the ground is less visible, a more intense green contrasts with where there are fewer plants and then this kind of agriculture art is created.”
