An artist is installing 38 giant roses across ten blocks in Manhattan as part of a floral project. The roses are made of plaster, wire mesh, PVC tubing, steel, fibreglass resin and brass and are complete with bees, ladybirds, aphids and beetles. The project has been created by artist Will Ryman along Park Avenue between 57th Street and 67th Street. Each installation includes up to six painted roses that stands around 25ft high. The whole project has cost about $1 million to create.
