The biggest topiary Art event to be shown in the U.s.a has just started! Explore the Atlanta Botanical Garden to experience creative imaginary World of Art, A Unique World of Plant Giants, on display from now until October 31. The garden is filled with 28 live sculptures, including nine original figures. This year’s additions include a couple of beautiful orangutangs, three joyful gorillas, and four playing frogs. They join a unicorn that is eating, an inspiring ogre, enormous cobras, and eyes stunning butterflies. The 25-foot-tall Earth Goddess is the tallest sculpture of all of them and has been a permanent fixture in the Garden’s collection since last year. She alone is made up of 18,000 green plants.
International Mosaiculture of Montreal, the pioneers in the art, produced these works of art in Canada.
How do they form these beautiful Sculptures?
A big question that always stirs in the heart of so many, the moment they behold the beauty of these Sculptures.
According to the Garden, “each sculpture is a living, creative progression of the traditional “filled topiary technique.” “To cover the steel shapes in vibrant designs, countless of precisely tended annuals are planted into soil and sphagnum moss-filled netting, which are concealed works of artisanship in and of themselves. The sculptures’ intricate irrigation systems allow the plants to grow and the animals to thrive even in the sweltering summer heat of Atlanta.
The International Mosaiculture of Montreal made its maiden appearance in the United States at the same venue last summer. With around 200,000 plants, the display this year promises to be even bigger and better.
