Musashino Art University‘s straw sculpture of a mammoth is an eco-friendly artwork that was erected way back in 2010 specially for the Setouchi Art Festival in Shodoshima. The sculpture was made of rice straw donated by some local farmers after the harvest. The environment-friendly structure is a modern art tribute to the beast that once roamed the earth.
