Gorillas join Imaginary Worlds exhibit at Atlanta Botanical Garden
ATLANTA (CBS46) -
The giant plant sculptures that proved to be popular last year at the Atlanta Botanical Garden are back with new exhibits.
Imaginary Worlds features 28 giant topiary-like sculptures of mosaiculture, the centuries-old horticultural art of covering steel forms in living plants.
The sculptures were created by artisans of International Mosaiculture of Montreal. The nonprofit group has staged exhibitions around the world since 2000, and Imaginary Worlds – open through Oct. 31 – marks the first time a show this large has been presented in the United States.
New to this exhibition are four frogs, three gorillas and a pair of orangutans. Several of the sculptures that debuted in the summer 2013 exhibition have returned, including the 25-foot-tall Earth Goddess, a pair of cobras, a unicorn, an ogre, a group of rabbits, and couple of butterflies. Those sculptures have all been "re-imagined" with new plant color schemes and staged in different parts of the garden.
