Check out one of the massive head sculptures at the New York Botanical Garden as part of "The Four Seasons." For the exhibition, housed in the Conservatory Courtyard, artist and filmmaker Philip Haas built four fiberglass busts; each one stands taller than 15 feet, and was inspired by Renaissance master Giuseppe Arcimboldo's portraits of the same name.
This flower-covered work, taken by NYC photographer Andrea D'Andrea, aptly represents Spring.
