English farmer Tom Percy celebrated the 100th anniversary of the discovery of King Tutankhamen‘s tomb in a creative way – by carving a large maze in the form of the Pharaoh in a corn field.
Percy cut about five kilometers to draw the path on an area of 15 acres. The final shape of the maze was the face of Tutankhamun.
Percy formed the maze using corn in a 100-meter-wide drawing, that the Daily Mail newspaper described as larger than the Royal Albert Hall in London. He engraved the phrase “York Maze” above the drawing, which may be the largest maze in Europe and among the largest in the world.
The maze was opened in the presence of crowds interested in ancient Egyptian antiquities, and the grandson of Lord Carnarvon, who was the first to enter the burial chamber of Tutankhamun in 1923, with Egyptologist, Howard Carter.
