An Indian artist, inspired by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, has painted an unusual birthday present for her.
Aman Singh Gulati, from Uttar Pradesh in northern India, painted the minuscule portrait of Ardern on an almond.

He claims he is the world's first artist to use almonds which are less than one inch in size.
The tiny portrait shows Ardern beaming against a white background.
"I am a subscriber of many news channels of New Zealand so from there I saw many achievements and development programs which were done by her Excellency," said Gulati in an email to Newshub on Friday.
It was thanks to New Zealand media that Gulati realised it was Ardern's birthday.
He said he wanted to give her good wishes as he is grateful for her "good work and helpful nature."
He says he has never been to New Zealand but he would love to visit and paint more almonds to represent the history and culture of the country.
Last year Gulati won the Sikh Award's People's Choice Award for his contribution to the field of art.
The nutty portrait is not the first time Ardern has appeared in artworks.
Murals of her have appeared on buildings in Australia, and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai was lit up with a gigantic photo of the PM.
A nude portrait of her drawn by a Kiwi artist was removed from Trade Me for being "inappropriate."
