Students in Sendai City, Miyagi Prefecture, have created dinosaur sculptures using rice straw from farmers affected by the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake.

There are six straw dinosaurs on display. The biggest is a stegosaurus that measures a whopping six meters. Visitors brave enough can even climb inside the mouth of the stegosaurus sculpture. The exhibition in Sendai continues until December 3rd.
