This Giant Dragon Sculpture Made Of Palm Tree Leaves And Wood Gave A Local Resident A Good Scare

Published 5 years ago

The Shimadakara was an art festival held in the city of Uruma on the Okinawa island in Japan from the 1st to the 10th of November. Artists and designers from all over Japan came to the festival to showcase their art, displaying everything from food art to giant balloons of grannies. And one art piece nearly gave a local resident a heart attack.

Twitter user shiromadara was walking around the festival grounds when they saw something that made them scream – a huge dragon! Don’t worry – it wasn’t the missing Drogon from Game of Thrones. Turns out it was just a realistic dragon sculpture made from palm tree leaves and wood.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
