A striking design depicting a giant imperial robe has appeared in a rapeseed field in east China, thanks to the handiwork of a group of local farmers.
The artistic display, emblazoned with a dragon image in the centre that looks particularly majestic from overhead, sprung up in a field in Nanjing on March 21 according to People's Daily Online.
The carefully crafted mural was organised by the farmers using detailed geographical line graphs, before they created it using artificial seeding.
The final effect was a remarkable flower portrait against a stunning backdrop of perfectly maintained green fields in suburban Nanjing
Another piece joined onto it, named 'Erlongxizhu', covered around 140 acres and combined another dragon totem with a creative maze-like design to map the contours of the earth, showing two dragons playing with a pearl.
The displays took months to plan, prepare and perfect - and provides quite a show for planes passing by to observe from above.
