Located near Mevagissey in Cornwall, UK, lies one of the most botanical gardens, The Lost Gardens of Heligan. One of the garden’s 200 acres attractions has been the Mud Maid living sculpture created by Brother and sister Pete and Sue Hill. The sculpture was commissioned back in 1998 and has become an inseparable part of The Lost Gardens’ Woodland Walk ever since. It’s a living sculpture meaning that its appearance changes with the seasons, as plants grow and then wither away.
Thirty years ago, Heligan’s historic gardens were unknown and unseen; lost to the brambles of time since the outbreak of WW1. It was only the chance discovery of a door in the ruins that led to the restoration of this once great estate. Today, The Lost Gardens have been put back where they belong: in pride of place among the finest gardens in England.
