In pictures: 1,000 flower garlands are hanging at Kew Gardens

By Stephanie Hartman

Remember that upside-down garden that popped up in the city last year? Well the artist behind it has designed a new topsy-turvy flower-packed installation and it’s her most intricate to date.

Inspired by the ancient Egyptian preserved funeral garlands of Ramesses II in the Kew Gardens collection, Rebecca Louise Law has painstakingly strung 1,000 of her own garlands using flowers she’s amassed and preserved over the last six years for this installation titled ‘Life in Death’.
