Rice field art

I came across this a few days back and thought it was incredibly neat.  There are already a number of articles around the web on this though, so I’ll keep it brief.

The images below are what happens when rice farmers get creative.  By mixing various types of rice (depending on their color) and laying it out in a pattern of their own design, they are able to create “living art”; a field of rice that gradually forms itself into a beautifully precise image as the plants grow.

I find it amazing that, despite the back-breaking work involved in simply sowing, maintaining, and harvesting acres and acres of land, farmers still find in themselves the creativity to do something like this.
