Video: Sheikh Mohammed’s record-breaking gift to Kuwait

It can be seen from space.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, posted a beautiful video on his Twitter handle commemorating Kuwait’s upcoming national day.

The caption reads, “The love of Kuwait and the people of Kuwait is etched into our land… in our hearts… in our history… May beloved Kuwait and its amir, prince of humanity, continue to see years of prosperity and peace.”

Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, Amir of Kuwait, has been immortalised in the sands of UAE in the world’s largest portrait.

According to the video, the portrait, slated to enter Guinness, is more than 170,000 square feet in size and carved out of red sand. Beneath the portrait, etched into the sand, are the words, “prince of humanity”.

KhalifaSat took a photo of the giant portrait, making Shiekh Sabah the first person in the world who can be seen from outer space.

The portrait was etched in the red sands of Qudra desert in Dubai. It took nearly 2,400 hours to complete, made entirely out of natural sands, as per Al Bayan report.

Kuwait will celebrate its national day on Monday, February 25.
