This is ‘Life in Death’, a series of incredible preserved flower garlands that have taken Kew by storm.

It’s been created by British artist Rebecca Louise Law, who was also responsible for the beautiful cherry blossoms that graced Mayfair eatery Sake No Hana earlier this year.

Make no mistake, a LOT of work has gone into creating this installation.

Law has spent six years collecting, preserving, and stringing up over one thousand garlands of flowers. That’s approximately 375,000 blossoms!

She took her inspiration from the funeral garlands of Egyptian pharaoh Ramesses II, which you can also find at Kew.
