The Mud Maid-Lost Gardens of Heligan
Hidden deep within the Woodland walk one finds the sleeping Mud Maid created by local artists Sue and Pete Hill in 1998.
She is build around a custom made hollow framework of timber and windbreak netting to which sticky mud was applied. The face and hands are a mixture of mud, cement and sand, originally coated with yogurt to set the lichens growing. The head is planted with Woodsedge (Carex sylvatica) and (Montbretia (Crocosmia sp.)](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crocosmia) and Ivy (Hedera helix) has been trained to clothe her.
