Ever since its inception, Zundert in the Netherlands has hosted an annual flower show Bloemencorso, with an average 50,000 visitors descending on the town to look at the brilliant displays. Creators use dahlias for their breathtaking displays and build gravity defying sculpture.
Volunteers created this show-stopping piece, where a startled antelope flees the clutches of a cheetah.
Utterly (udderly?) brilliant - the competitors left no detail out - they even included the numbers on the tags on the ears, and what appears to be the inner workings of a milk-processing plant within the cow's body.
Something fishy about this: Bloemencorso saw this elaborate fish display, a shoal of fish whirling around each other - even using light-coloured dahlias to shade in the light bouncing off the eyeballs.
Bloemencorso has spiraled in popularity, as the small population makes huge efforts to
outdo one another so they can create sculptures like his huge organ.
Even the meerkats get a mention! The curious animals are brought to life, as creators perfected
every inch of the models, even down to their nails and shading on their tails.
