Sculptor Fills The Forest with Life-Size Sculptures Made from Woven Rods of Willow

It’s not often that you walk through a forest and encounter a life-size statue of a woman shooting a bow and arrow. But that’s exactly what British sculptor Anna and the Willow has crafted. She’s filling the U.K. forests with statues made of willow branches by combining sculpture and basket weaving.

The sculptor says she first discovered willow weaving a few years ago when she decided to take a basketry class. She was inspired to combine it with sculpture, make it life-size, and put it out in nature.
