Lost Gardens of Heligan

In Cornwall, in the south of England, if you get lost in its forests, those sources of inspiration for King Arthur, perhaps you can find this sculpture buried in the ground and with which the effect is shown of the stations.

Well, it is one of the vertices given to give greater meaning to this work created by the twins Pete and Sue Hill. We talk about the Lost Gardens of Heligan, and that it is one of the most popular botanical gardens in the UK.

It is in its forests where you can find the Mud Maid sculpture and that is part of the Lost Gardens of Heligan since 1997, when it was commissioned to leave it in these magical spaces lost from the madding crowd.

Mud Maid

We could say that Mud Maid is a «living sculpture», since their textures and “skins” change in each season so that we can go from those vivid greens in spring to those more ocher and autumn colors in this same season.

A vibrant sculpture as shown in each of the photographs that make clear the effect of the change in the seasons in a place like these Heligan’s Lost Gardens; a must see if you ever pass through the south of England.

The photos speak for themselves like the moss itself, it has adapted to the dimensions and measurements of this sculpture that lies prostrate on the ground. There are powerful images on their own, indicating that nature itself tends to “draw” the best of paintings as long as we look at it from the best of perspectives.

We leave you with this work of an artist who uses his own sheets in his great tonal variety to create full sculptures and that they could perfectly be participants in those Lost Gardens of Heligan; a site to know and visit.
