The second group explores the botanical vegetation of the Gardens of Babylon – compositions of precisely formed topiaries, flowers, and decorative trees, their origin, the variety of herbs, and vegetable plants, and their uses.
In the practical part (50 minutes), each participant will have the opportunity to create a unique picture from seeds, grains, herbs, and other natural goods of a selected world architectural building.
