The Mud Man and Moss Maiden

The story of this strange land sculpture garden is almost as unusual as the curiously representational earth art found within it. The so-called Lost Gardens of Heligan were once overgrown, lost and forgotten but are now one of the most popular botanical gardens in the UK. One intrepid explorer took it upon himself to locate, uncover and restore the gardens to their former glory. To the amazement of locals the then-unused land was brought back to full flower and became a significant boon for the local economy – the mud man and moss maiden shown above being also restored in the process.
