WEB DESK: Giant animals are usually the sign of horror but these ones made with rice straw left over are too adorable. Plus, all the hard work and dedication that were invested in making of animals needs our appreciation.
These giant animals are basically made in Japan to celebrate fall harvest. In Northern Japan, rice season is celebrated during September-December. And, Wara Art Festival made these giant animals on the occasion.
Also, in Japan these rice straws were once used to make several goods like tatami mats. Most of these goods are now produced with plastic and wood. But, utilizing straw, students of Musashino Art University produced these sculptures of giant species in the fields of Niigata where Wara art festival is taking place since 2008.
