Each sculpture is basically made of shallow metal beds covered with a mixture of soil and a wide cloth, and the plants grow like a carpet on a mat as it grows out. Different plants offer different textures and colors. Alice’s hair, for example, is represented by the flower Alternanthera, specifically the yellow Joseph Coat. In the meantime, the hedgehog, which acts as a crocodile, is covered with cherries, figs, and grass. Almost every sculpture requires thousands of plants, they drink water every day and are cut every two weeks.
