Not what it seems

A straw replica of London's 'Big Ben' is pictured in a field in Nantwich in Cheshire, in north-west England. The replica was built to celebrate 150 years of the London landmark. The 72-foot sculpture, which is made with 500 bales of straw and weighs 20 tons, features a working clock with two faces that are illuminated at night. It is the work of local businessmen Chris Sadler and Mike Harper.
