Site-specific straw sculpture by the Musashino Art University on Shodoshima, one of the five islands in Japan participating the Triennial Setouchi Art Festival. The mammoth was made of rice straw donated by local farmers after the harvest and displayed in the same fields, in 2010.

Straw art is one of the most popular parts of  this festival, where artists collaborate with local residents to create large scale sculptures, like this mammoth. Check out the Light of Shodoshima, a giant straw dome by Wang Wen-chih here.
