Growing out of the landscape, this living sculpture is made of Eden clay, mirrors and planted with grasses.

This female figure, originally conceived as Eve, has now come to represent and embody the broader notions of nature, earth, and the wild. She is part of a series of Green Women sculptures; one of which is her precursor, the Mudmaid at The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
