Is this a real pyramid or a very good optical illusion

Check this out:



Is it flat land that has been mowed and had paths placed in such a way that it looks like a pyramid from a elevated view or is it a actual pyramid.

It's located in Heemstede, Netherlands,i zoomed in and checked it out and i am pretty sure its flat land, its just very well done mowed grass/different shades of grass. The paths have been placed in a spiral fashion to love as if they are going up. Also the entire thing doesn't seem to cast any shadow.

But i could be wrong....i couldn't find any info on the net, check below link if you want to zoom in and check it out for yourself

Has anyone here seen or heard of this before????

Don't worry it took me coming to this site to realize that the rather scary looking skeleton of a building structure that i see from my office every day is the soon to be 118 floor Hong Kong ICC Buidling.

Is the floriade this year? I have been to some a few decades back and it was just about the best flower and garden show, I have ever seen in my life.
