The Flower Council of Holland created a giant ‘living’ painting, made up of 26,500 real flowers, to stand outside the famous London landmark on Trafalgar Square. The installation is located just outside of the art museum in London’s famous Trafalgar Square. It’s called A Still Life of Flowers in a Wan-Li Vase and pays tribute to Dutch artist Ambrosius Bosschaert the Elder’s masterpiece of the same name.
It took almost 30 florists working for two days straight, using 100 blocks of florist foam, nearly 30,000 stems of 26 different flower varieties in 37 different colours to recreate Bosschaert’s work. To keep the flowers looking fresh, the piece has a built-in water irrigation system.
