Japanese Artists Creating Gigantic Straw Sculptures

In Japan when autumn comes, it is the rice harvesting season, all farmers make sure that the remaining rice straw called “wara ” are not thrown away.  Farmers use them to feed cattle or improve the soil, managing to reuse them for different purposes.  In Niigata province, there is an event called “Wara Art Festival”, where there are exhibited several rice straw sculptures made with high creativity. In 2008, ” wara ” was used to make huge sculptures exposed in the Uwasekigata Park.

All the sculptures are handmade from wooden rods that are the basis of the works, each creation lasts about a week until it is completed, but the result is spectacular. Authors of the art creations are the Local Tourism Council of the Niigata city and the students of Musashino University of Art.
