As autumn approaches, some people might be getting excited over the reintroduction of pumpkin spice lattés – but what is even more stunning are these massive sculptures made from the leftover straw of harvested crops.
The creations are for the Wara Art Festival at the Uwasekigata Park in Japan. Because farmers are reluctant to let the materials go to waste, all of the hay used for the sculptures are made from recycled rice-straw.
Since this year marks the 10th Wara Art Festival, the sculptures are bigger and better than ever – so big, in fact, that they require wooden frames to stay upright.
Some of this year’s creations include a massive rhino, an angry gorilla, and a shocking depiction of a growling lion.
