|Longji Terraced Fields|
The rice terraces are built into the hillsides. The terraces look like great chains or ribbons as they wind from the foot to the top of the hill. This ingenious construction makes best use of the scare arable land and water resources in the mountainous area. There are about 66 square kilometers terraced fields in southeast of Longsheng.

Here are some amazing artwork images on the rice fields made by the Japanese farmers:
The residents of Inakadate, Japan, have taken the art of playing with their food to an entirely new level. Every year, rice farmers work together to plant their crops so that they’ll grow in artistic patterns visible only from above.
The rice paddy art will be visible until September, when it will be harvested.

Desert-based irrigation projects such as this one typically drill thousands of feet underground to tap fossil water deposits. There are a half-dozen or so such projects in Libya; this is one of the largest, with almost 100 irrigated fields, each over one kilometer in diameter.
