Giant Straw Godzilla Appears in Japan

A group of 150 volunteers have built a 23-foot tall likeness of Godzilla out of straw! It has LED eyes that light up, too. The giant statue is fashioned from rice reeds, which would lead one to think it's a harvest icon. An art project, for sure. Is it an offering to the Toho Studios monster that it should spare Japan any destruction this year? Or maybe destruction is the whole purpose. After all, Gävle, Sweden, put itself on the international stage by building a straw goat every year that gets torched. And this Godzilla is not only extremely flammable, it's set out in a field where such destruction would not hurt homes or businesses. Stay tuned. You can see more pictures of the straw Godzilla and its construction at Unreality.
