To make the fall harvest, over 150 volunteers built this rice straw Godzilla. From design to construction, the whole thing took about four months to finish.

JCast reports that the statue measures 7 meters (22.96 feet) tall and has a 10 meter (32.80 feet) long tail. It’s even outfitted with LEDs in its eyes, dorsal fins, and tail.
