Seeing Coco Martin and Fernando Poe, Jr. together might be any "Ang Probinsyano" fan's dream. It would've been awesome seeing these two Kardos meeting or even working with each other. But with "The King's" passing in 2004, it's all wishful thinking.
But the guys from Philippine Rice Institute have made the impossible happen in their latest rice paddy art.
Using palay, PhilRice drew the faces of the two actors on a rice field near their station in Maligaya, Science City of Munoz.
They used a Korean purple rice variety to draw the eyes, nose, mouth and other facial details of the two, while the green-leafed palay served as the canvas for the artwork.
Employing the 3D anamorphosis principle, many people will be able to appreciate the artwork from different angles.
The rice paddy art is part of PhilRice's awareness campaign called "FutureRice program" that aims to promote farming and agriculture among the younger generation.
Prior to Coco and FPJ, PhilRice also drew the faces of Jose Rizal, President Rodrigo Duterte and Vice President Leni Robredo using the same procedure.
Aside from eye-catching rice paddies, the five-hectare central experiment station also has a renewable energy supply system, employs drone technology, state-of-the-art agri facilities, and a field for growing different varieties of rice.
The artwork will remain on the field until May 14. Those who wish to view and take pictures of the featured rice paddy drawings may contact FutureRice farm via Facebook or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
