Rice paddies become artworks in South Korea

Sharjah 24 – AFP:

In an awareness project that took several months, farmers and children worked to convert rice fields near Suncheon, 320 kilometers south of the South Korean capital, Seoul, into huge paintings that can be seen from the air.
Those responsible for these drawings, which cannot be seen from the ground, aim to send educational messages that include promoting rational agriculture, in light of the devastating effects of the use of chemical products on insects.

Among these works, a painting in a rice field showing the phrase “Take heart, Korea”, referring to the country’s battle as well as the rest of the world against the Covid-19 pandemic.

To protect these actions from grain-devouring birds, about 500 scarecrows in traditional Korean costumes known as hanbok were placed on the site.

“There are primary and supplementary students, members of various associations in the area, merchants and others who have participated in the project from the seed sprinkling to the end of harvest,” said Huin Young-soo, a local farmer at the age of 63.
