This spectacular living sculpture was created by sculptor Kathryn Jordan and artist Cliff Wright. Entitled, ‘In Our Hands’, it grows on the front lawn of St. Peter’s Church in Brighton, England. The sculpture was made using drought tolerant plants and peat free compost. The partially submerged head has brass eyes mixed into the foliage.
