The Earth Goddess


The Earth Goddess

Currently on display from now through 31 October 2014 is the Imaginary Worlds: A New Kingdom of Plant Giants exhibit at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.  The exhibit features 28 giant topiary-like sculptures ranging up to 25 ft tall (7.62 m) and 20 ft wide (6 m) and contain nearly 200,000 plants. The largest, the 25-foot-tall Earth Goddess (seen above), is stuffed with 40,000 annuals and has become a permanent living sculpture in the Garden’s collection.
