10 years gardening project – Green Dragon Hedge
John Booker spent 10 years creating a huge, green sculpture in his garden. Everything came from a passion for gardening. For many years, the old man cared for the hedge to create an unusual work of art. The living figure, reminiscent of a dragon, is about 430 cm taller than its creator. The entire sculpture is over 4 meters long and 600 cm high.
Given the size of the green sculpture and careful workmanship, it is not surprising that the man has been doing it for over 10 years. Details that were created when creating the dragon include even the smallest details. The dragon looks very calm, as if it were captured during sleep – this is not typical beyond a formidable creature. The man did not intend to create a terrible figure of the dragon, he wanted his sculpture to be friendly and to decorate the surroundings.

The dragon is not an ordinary green sculpture. The man created a figure as a gift for his wife. John Booker wanted to express his love for his beloved and decided to transform his passion into a unique gift for the chosen one of his life. Of course, the beloved helped John create a sculpture. Mrs. Booker is a graphic designer and shares her passion and passion for gardening with her husband.
