Incredible Harry Potter Maze Cut Into Maize Crop: Pictures

The Harry Potter Themed York Maze An aerial view of Tom Pearcy's Maize Maze in the shape of Harry Potter, on July 11, 2011 in York, England. Farmer Tom Pearcy has cut two portraits of Harry Potter in his crop of maize plants. With some subtle differences the two images create the world's largest spot the difference competition. At over 50m in diameter, and cut out of over 1 million living maize plants, the York Maze is the largest 'Maize Maze' in Europe and one of the largest in the world.

(Getty Images) Even the most obsessed Harry Potter fans will have to give it up for a farmer in York, England, who has built not one, but two portraits of Potter film star Daniel Radcliffe into the largest maze made of maize in Europe.

Farmer Tom Pearcy cut the giant maze into a field of more than 1 million maize plants. The final product functions as a maze, and with tiny differences between the two Potter portraits it also offers a large-scale spot the difference game for anyone viewing from a helicopter.

Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint reprise their roles for the final Harry Potter movie, which opens this weekend. So far no one has made a maize maze of Rupert or Emma, so farmers still have plenty of chances to cash in on the Potter craze with their own original works.
