For the sixth year in a row, the small town of Mont-Saint-Heeler, in the south of the province of Quebec, hosts a colorful festival of landscape art Land Art Mont-Saint-Hilaire… For five days, the artists who take part in the event collect leaves, branches, stones and other gifts of nature, and then turn these simple sets of materials into amazing works of art that can capture the imagination of the most sophisticated viewer. On the last day of the festival, the organizers sum up the results and determine the winner. This year the giant was recognized as the best art project. apple mandala artists Agnes Dumouchel… The apple art project by Agnes Dumouchel, on which she and her assistants worked during the five days of the 2012 festival, is called EVE IL and consists of several thousand red and pink apples. It is unlikely that all of them were collected in the same garden where this year's Land Art Mont-Saint-Hilaire festival was held, but some of them definitely come from here. Apples, as a decorative part of the EVE IL art project, and black earth, as its basis, the mandala symbolizes the sacred connection between man and nature. And also a direct connection between land, black soil, and a rich harvest.

Previously, people brought rich gifts to the gods of fertility so that the land would give crops, and the weather contributed to its prosperity and ripening. The apple mandala by Agnes Dumouchel is not only a work of art, but also a kind of gift to the ancient gods of nature. By the way, no matter how surprising it may sound, many of the works of participants in last year's festivals have passed the test of time, and still flaunt in their places, like installations at an open-air exhibition. Perhaps they, too, were guarded by the invisible hand of the god of nature?
