Images of topiary cats created by an artist “as a fun project” are being seen and shared by millions on social media.
Richard Saunders once saw an ornamental shrub and was struck by how its shape resembled his beloved pet cat while asleep. Now the images he creates replacing real-life bushes with his pet’s feline form have reached millions of people around the globe.
Imagine walking through a beautiful English country garden, turning a corner and seeing a gigantic, perfectly-manicured cat sculpted from lush green bushes lazing next to a lake.
Taken from the mind of a “surrealist” artist from Stapleford, Hertfordshire – and rendered into high-quality fantastical images – the topiary cat has been taking social media by storm.
