Trends: Landscape Skulls?

It’s all over fashion…even my little people (ages 3 and 6) have clothing items with skulls, so it has to trickle over to the garden and I think it has.

Did it start with Damien Hirst, or is he just a trend follower too? Not sure, but I love this knock off pumpkin.

Nice Sculpture
Skull Sculpture

An Indian artist named Subodh Gupta, has come up with a giant skull made completely out of kitchen utensils at the Frieze art fair in London.

This is currently at the Missouri Botanical Garden for a special exhibit of sculpture by Niki de Saint Phalle. How about that for your front garden on Halloween. I found this at Messenger Boy.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Thanks for the link. The skull is pretty amazing. If you look carefully you can see the legs of people sitting behind the teeth. 🙂
