Visitors flock to the rice field in northeastern Japan to see the breathtaking artworks stretching across the landscape at the exhibition which runs until mid-August.

The village began the exhibition 21 years ago to attract tourists.This year two giant murals, depicting a traditional Japanese courtesan and iconic Hollywood actress Marilyn Monroe, are drawing large crowds to the field.

The villagers used nine kinds of rice plants in seven colors to fashion the artworks on the field, which is 140 meters long and 100 meters wide.

Monroe`s famous pose was recaptured again back in 2010 in the form on a 26 foot statue called called Forever Marilyn by artist Seward Johnson.
