Art Found in a Rice Field

Stunning Crop Art has sprung up across Rice Fields in Japan. But this is no Alien Creation - the designs have been cleverly planted.
Farmers creating the huge displays use No Ink or Dye. Instead, different Colors of Rice Plants have been precisely and strategically arranged and grown in the paddy fields.

As summer progresses and the plants shoot up, the detailed artwork begins to emerge.

A Sengoku Warrior on Horseback has been created from hundreds of thousands of Rice Plants, the colors created by using different varieties, in Inakadate in Japan.
The largest and finest work is grown in the Aomori Village of Inakadate , 600 miles north of Toyko, where the tradition began in 1993.

Napolean on horseback can be seen from the Skies, created by precision planting and months of planning between villagers and farmers in Inkadate

Fictional warrior Naoe Kanetsugu and his wife Osen appear in fields in the town of Yonezawa , Japan

Smaller works of Crop Art can be seen in other Rice-Farming Areas of Japan such as this image of Doraemon and Deer Dancers.

The farmers create the murals by planting little purple and yellow-leafed Kodaimai Rice along with their local green-leafed Tsugaru Roman variety to create the colored patterns between planting and harvesting in September.

Closer to the image, the careful placement of thousands of rice plants in the paddy fields can be seen

The different varieties of Rice Plant grow alongside each other to create the Masterpieces
