Art in field prays for an end to novel coronavirus - Ashoro Town

A wheat farm field in eastern Hokkaido’s Ashoro became a canvas for “field art” expressing a desire for the novel coronavirus pandemic to end and gratitude towards medical workers.
The art was created using a tractor equipped with an auto-steering device that employs a satellite navigation Global Positioning System (GPS). A tiller was attached to the tractor, and this was used to plow into the already-harvested wheat field a 200 meter tall by 160 meter wide message that included a coronavirus image inside of a no symbol and the word “STOP”. The owner of the wheat field heard about the difficulties a nurse in the family was going through and contacted the staff of a farm equipment company that creates field art throughout a wide scope of regions. The art took about two hours to complete.
