Mud Maid on Woodland Walk

Mud maid of Woodland Walk, England

Located on Woodland Walk, in the Lost Gardens of Heligan, is an amazing sculpture of a sleeping goddess adorned with grass and moss entitled ‘Mud Maid’.

Heligan was a sprawling thousand-acre estate in the UK (Pentewan, St. Austell, Cornwall to be exact), and was originally bought by the Tremaynes in the 16th century. After decades of neglect in the 1900s it became decayed and overgrown until an ambitious restoration project in 1996 brought the gardens back to life. They are now one of the most popular botanical gardens in the UK.
