A rice paddy in Pingtung County planted in many different colors to resemble LINE characters has been harvested.

Pingtung County government officials say rice stalks of different hues were used to make a design created by artist Lin Ching-yuan.

The design includes LINE characters – Brown the bear, Cony the rabbit, James and Chief Moon.

Officials say the 4.5 ton rice harvest will be sold and the proceeds will go to social welfare subsidies in the county.

LINE is a Japanese smartphone chat application launched in 2011.
