These larger than life sculptures can be found at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. The incredible living plant sculptures are part of the biggest ever exhibited in the United States of America and will be on display until October 31, 2014. Imaginary Worlds: A New Kingdom of Plant Giants consists of 28 installations originally created by the International Mosaiculture of Montreal, the Canadian leaders of mosaiculture.

Featuring almost 280,000 plants, the new exhibit at the Atlanta Botanical Garden is a natural evolution of stuffed topiary techniques. In addition to the 25 foot Goddess installation (which incorporates a fountain), Imaginary Worlds also consists of a number of animals including a horse, frog, chimpanzees, gorillas and snakes. Butterflies and other faces are recreated in live sculpture form.
