Fun Link Friday: Giant Straw Dinosaurs

Last year in October we had the chance to show you some of Ehime’s giant straw boars made by local residents and professors. This year, September has brought us the Wara Art Festival in Niigata. There, the locals took the straw from their year’s harvest and made spectacular giant straw dinosaurs (among other enormous beasts, such as crabs and cobras!).

There’s a number of great pictures from twitter users who worked on or visited the project, including some shots of the works in progress, so be sure to check it out at the original Kotaku article here!
