Giant Straw Animals Invade Japanese Fields After Rice Harvest And They’re Amazing

Each year during the Fall in Norther Japan the Wara Art Festival is held where Musashino Art University students in Tokyo create amazingly beautiful sculptures from rice straw.

These marvelous creations are made by braiding the golden straw over a wooden frame shaped like the animal they’re creating. Some of the designs include lions, gorillas, crocodiles, and even dinosaurs!

The Wara Art Festival is held annually at Uwasekigata Park starting in late August where the sculptures remain up and intact until the end of October.

Check out some of the amazing creations below!
