Willow Man, Serena de la Hey's 40-feet tall sculpture, which is a familiar sight to travellers on the M5 motorway through Somerset. We passed him today on a daytrip to Torquay and Paignton.
According to the artist's website, Willow Man is "the largest willow figure in the UK, and possibly the world." It was made out of 30 bundles of 7/8 feet willow, woven around a 3 tonne steel skeletal frame. This is the second Willow Man on the site, the original having been destroyed by fire in 2001.
