Giant Straw Dinosaurs Amaze Visitors at Wara Art Festival in Japan

The straw sculptures are part of the Wara Art Festival in Niigata, Japan.

The festival was started eight years ago as a way to celebrate the end of the rice harvest by turning the harvest's rice straw byproducts into amazing works of art.

This year's sculptures featured at Kamizeki Lagoon Park in Niigata, were created by a team of students at the Musashino Art University.

The giant straw sculptures are supported only by a simple wooden frame underneath.
