Geoffroy Mottart is known for his striking and unique art work -- floral hair and beard creations that are used to adorn a series of forgotten statues in Belgium. Though temporary, these colorful headdresses and beards bring light to public art and historical sculptures that often go overlooked by those seeing them every day.

Choosing to put his stamp on a number of historic statues, Geoffroy Mottart has redecorated a number of Belgium's public statues, including those of Hermes. Leopold II, Victor Rousseau, and others.

Choosing fresh flowers as his medium of choice, the artist clusters colorful varieties to create lush facial hair, crowns and hats that are juxtaposed against the rough and faded patina of the original statues.
