10 Giant Flower Sculptures At The World’s Biggest Flower Parade In The Netherlands

Posted on Art 102

Every year the Netherlands is invaded by the most eye-pleasing giant monsters made out of thousands of Dahlia flowers. For puny people’s amusement, they’re then paraded on the streets in the annual ‘Corso Zundert’ Flower Parade.

This year 20 different floats were showcased in the festival, all made by volunteer enthusiasts. From flower dragons to full action scenes, these giant art pieces showcase not only the craftsmanship of the artists but also the immense dedication it takes to stitch one of these.

Oh, and if you’re wondering, this year’s winner is “Dangerous Transportation“, a giant orange dragon designed by a team called Tiggelaar.
