hamad bin hamdanThe name of Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Ahyan, a super-rich Arab sheikh who is the president of the oil-rich United Arab Emirates, written on the sand so large that can be seen from the space.

On a sandy island Sheikh Hamad has inscribed what is in effect the biggest graffiti tag the world has ever seen.

The letters were crafted by a crew who worked for weeks to create them. The inscription measures half a mile high and two miles long–and the letters are dug so deep that they form waterways.

His moniker is so big it can be seen from space. The tip of the “H” reaches into the strait that leads to the Arabian Gulf, allowing Hamad to fill the first two letters of his name with water. The “M” looks partially filled as well.

The island that “Hamad” has been inscribed on, Al Futaisi, is said to be entirely owned by the Sheikh and contains resorts, a golf course and horse stables.
