While in Montreal, le Chuck and I spent an afternoon walking through the Botanical Garden and looking up, way way up, at the larger-than-life masterpieces of Mosaïcultures Internationales. We were enthralled. Definitely a huge highlight to a vacation that had so many.
The Mosaïcultures exhibit brings together horticulture artists from around the world to create living and growing sculptures that fit in with the theme “Land of Hope.”
“Land of Hope” stands as a bulwark against the current wave of global doom-mongering by promoting the beauty of life in all its various forms. Is there anything better than nature itself to represent all of its splendour and fragility? Lise Cormier, President, International Mosaiculture Committee
We were in complete awe throughout. Just when we thought we couldn’t be more amazed, we came across the Tree of Hope! HOLY “56-birds-species-in-one-gigantic-tree” MOLY! The piece was so big that the people working in it looked minuscule and were using mountain climbing gear to scale it.
Mosaicultures says they have “raised horticultural art to a new level.” Huge understatement.
