Musashino Art University's Rice Straw Art Structures are Eco-Friendly

Artists have been paying tribute to giant mammals and creatures that have inhabited our planet for quite some time, but Japan’s Musashino Art University’s straw art designs are bringing a new, environmentally friendly appreciation to one of the oldest and renowned long-tusked animals to ever walk the face of the Earth.

Musashino Art University’s straw art showcases the colossal frame of the Mammoth. However, unlike a lot of gigantic art sculptures, this organically composed art piece is sustainable and completely environmentally friendly.

The straw Mammoth structure uses rice straw donated by local farmers that was left over from the harvest. By doing this, the University doesn’t have to worry about the potentially harmful effects of leaving a permanent structure up. It’s by combining the essence of nature with a man-made design that the Musashino Art University is making a modern tribute to our past.
