The Sleeping Goddess

The Lost Gardens of Heligan near Mevagissey in Cornwall, are one of the most popular botanical gardens in the UK. The style of the gardens is typical of the nineteenth century Gardenesque style, with areas of different character and in different design styles. The gardens were created by members of the Cornish Tremayne family, over a period from the mid-18th century up to the beginning of the 20th century.

Located on Woodland Walk is an amazing sculpture of a sleeping goddess entitled 'Mud Maid.' The incredible larger-than-life sculpture even has grass and moss growing atop it.
