ARTIST CREATES BEAUTIFUL SLEEPING BIRD SCULPTURES USING FOLIAGE
A stunning sight adding to Nantes, France beauty is the unique Jardin des Plantes, a large botanical garden. There you will find this adorable sculpture called Poussin endormi otherwise known as the Sleepy Chicken, by French artist and children's author Claude Ponti.
This giant adorable artwork features a huge chick whose relaxed posture looks like it's sleeping. The delightful work demonstrates Ponti's great skill at making topiaries. It produces evenly textured, rounded shapes accented with metallic details like long, thin legs and a bright yellow beak. There are even tiny lashes dotting the bird's closed eyes!
