Woven Grass



On a recent trip in Seattle, we stumbled upon this landscape art project in Magnuson Park: french braided grass!



If your grass has grown a bit too long and you're looking for something new to do other than cut it with a lawnmower, this is an inspiring idea!

I had a Gotcha! moment when I realized it wasn't actually crop circles. Really neat stuff.

Very creative...I wonder who thought to do it?

Nicely symmetrical tree. Nature is symmetrical of course, as Leonardo Da Vinci, who knew a thing or two about symmetry, showed in this beautiful drawing, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8EWLAW . It can be ordered as a canvas print from wahooart.com.

They are beautiful, thanks a lot for sharing these. I found, that the braiding in crop circles is related to the pagan "Lammastide", the first harvest and crafts festival marking the beginning of the hearvest season: "Lammas/Lughnasadh is a day for honoring Lugh, the Celtic craftsman god."
