With just about 2 weeks before Japan welcomes in 2018, the new year of the dog, Hitachi Seaside Park in Ibaraki Prefecture has unveiled an enormous geoglyph of a Shiba-inu and 2 pups. The large sculpture measures 23 x 27 meters (75 x 89 ft) and is made from natural elements found in the park like kochia plants, tree branches and pine cones.

From the ground the sculpture doesn’t look like much but the park’s ferris wheel will take visitors high up for a birds-eye view. The geoglyph, which is accompanied by the kanji character 安 meaning peace will be up through January 8, 2018.
