If you’ve ever been intrigued by Renaissance painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s monstrous portraits of composite heads made entirely of fruits, vegetables, flowers, and other objects, then American artist/director Philip HaasFour Seasons is for you. Haas has reimagined the 16th century painter’s series Four Seasons as four large-scale sculptures standing over 15 feet high, one representing Spring, another Summer, Autumn, and lastly, Winter. The three-dimensional interpretations are created with intricately detailed fiberglass made to look like flowers, bark, vegetables and leaves.

The Four Seasons sculptures have been traveling from London to Phoenix and now, since May and through October, they are at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx.
