Keeping To An Art Theme,

here is rice paddy art,

 we have featured rice paddy art before, and this year from the same village, every year around this time Inakadate Village in Japan’s Aomori prefecture transforms their rice paddies into a gigantic canvas for art,this year they’re celebrating the 90th Anniversary of manga artist OsamuTezuka,

 Tezuka was born in 1928 and during his lifetime produced some of the most famous and long-lasting manga like Tetsuwan Atom (Astro Boy), Ribon no Kishi (Princess Knight) Jungle Taitei (Jungle Emperor Leo) and Black Jack, these iconic works were featured in the rice paddy, which was just unveiled yesterday the12th

different varieties of rice are planted according to blueprints in early June,they take roughly 1 month to grow, slowly filling out and completing the artwork, which is then unveiled in July,spectators can visit the rice paddy through the months of July and August but the colours begin to fade around mid-August, now here is the good news, if you can not make it to Inakadate Village last year they started live-streaming their rice paddies and posting daily photos,You can see it all here, I still wish I was there though.
