They Look Like Regular Sculptures, But The Secret Behind Them Fascinates Thousands. Just Amazing!

Every year a flower parade named “Zundert Flower Parade” is arranged in The Netherlands. It is said that the people in the village loves all kinds of flowers and after seeing this pictures it’s not hard to understand why. If you watch the sculptures from a distance it’s really hard to tell that they are created only with flowers. Just imagine all the hours of work to create these gigantic sculptures. The theme for this year was the famous painter Vincent Van Gogh and these sculptures are really a work of art.

The parade has been arranged every year since 1936.
