Crop Circles, the Magical Work of Art!

Dearest readers, today I am in the mood to talk something 'magical' :D due to excitement of entering an absract for paper to Urban Fantasy Converence in Prague, Czech. Papers can be in

any aspect of the Urban Fantasy genre as well as those concerned with Magic and the Supernatural in more general terms or other subheadings. Well, it was a rush project for me, as I started to mend all the literature and write the absract only in 2 days! Hmm, just wish me luck then ;)

My paper is about crop circle; the subject is the same as the subject of this post. the appearance of crop circles in recent years has been long plagued my mind. For you who hasn't yet get any idea of what is it, I'll explain a bit about it.
A crop circle is a sizable pattern created by the flattening of a crop such as wheat, barley, rye, maize, or rapeseed. Crop circles are also referred to as crop formations, because they are not always circular in shape.

History of crop circles can be traced to the year 1678. In the century, there was a wood carving named “Mowing Devil”, depicting a demon drawing an oval design on a wheat field. The story behind this carving is actually mystical. Once told that a farmer refused an order from his patron and said that it will be better the devil itself to do that work. The wheat field burned at that night and in the morning a mysterious oval pattern appeared on that field. However, no one can confirm the truth in that story.

Here are some pictures of amusing crop circles!
