Living Sculptures at Botanical Gardens in Montreal

Evelyn Hannon

When researching my summer jaunt to Montreal, Canada I came upon a website that fueled my imagination. It read:

'The horticultural art exhibition Mosaïcultures Internationales Montréal 2013 will bloom in Montreal from June 22 to September 29, 2013, at the Montréal Botanical Garden. Hours are 9 AM to 7 PM, seven days a week. Get set for spectacular two- and three-dimensional works made from living plants, created by the world's top horticultural artists. An enchanting outing for the whole family, and the must-see event of summer 2013!

Some of the countries taking part in this competition included Belgium, China, Spain, Japan, Mexico, Turkey and a number of African nations. Each one was responsible for creating a single living, breathing sculpture. Here are just a few of my favorites. The time I spent in the Gardens was an absolute delight. Don't forget your camera!

If you'd like further information please see: and be sure to buy your tickets online. Otherwise there is a long wait in the ticket line.

Lemurs in the garden

A family of lemurs parade in a row at the garden entrance. They are one of more than 50 creations from 20 countries.


Man and boy fishing

This granddad and grandson installation was created by the Dutch.


Girl and forest animals, Guy Boily

Mother Nature was created totally from aluminum forms wrapped in metal mesh filled with earth and planted with flowers, ivies and grasses.


Farm animals grazing

Sheep and goats grazing within the 2.2 kilometer circuit of sculptures.


Horses running through a field

Huge horses galloping across a meadow of flowers. Breathtaking!
