Lovely Bavarian crop circle lures new agers

It’s a bit humorous that people still treat crop circles with such spiritual significance when it’s well-known that they are human-created. Still, they are so artistic and quite beautiful.

Crop circle in Germany attracts many visitors – US News.

Thousands of people are trekking to a Bavarian farmer’s field to check out a mysterious set of crop circles.

The ornate design was discovered by a balloonist last week and news of the find quickly spread online.

Farmer Christoph Huttner, who owns the wheat field near Weilheim, couldn’t be reached for comment Wednesday but told the dpa news agency Tuesday he didn’t create the circle himself.

He suggests students on summer holiday may have cut the image with a 75-meter diameter (246 feet) into his field.

People are seen meditating as well as singing and dancing. No word on if he is charging admission. As with our last reported crop circle, often the artists get permission from the farmer. This landowner is not divulging that information. But he seems to be enjoying the attention.

    Looks very much like Pennsylvania Dutch folk art hex barn signs too me :)

    In some high resolution overhead photos of crop circles one can see the “toolmarks” used in creating the circle. Analogous to seeing the tracks made by individual hairs within a brush stroke in a painting, one can see adjacent tracks made by the “stomper boards.”

    Most crop circles have radial symmetry and show evidence of simple Euclidian constructions. If crop circles were created by an “intelligence” other than humans, why don’t we see other artistic styles, like we see in modern urban graffiti, or in ancient cave painting? Why no two point perspective? If the “intelligences” are so intelligent, why so uncreative?

    The round shape suggests to me that one of these would have been wildly popular and famous if it had shown up a few weeks ago as a soccer ball.

    Here in the Midwest, corn mazes are rather common. I feel a bit slighted that the new-agers never come to meditate our local pig-shaped corn maze.

    Is it the corn they disdain or the pig shape?

      I think they just get frustrated by not being able to figure out how to get out of the maze once they get in.

      Sounds like a natural for guerilla fursuiting as a Minotaur.
