Along the collaboration with Canada based Mosaicultures Internationales De Montreal, 108 plant sculptures have been implemented at EXPO 2016 Antalya.

Human survival has an indivisible dependence on the flora and fauna of our planet.
Reminding us of our history, the site invites us to reconsider our environmental awareness and the importance of preserving life in all its forms (flora and fauna).
The mosaiculture sites will represent both the history of domestication and the various uses of plants and animals on the continents they are associated with. Thus:
Scene 1, 2, 3 and 4 will be associated with Asia (in its broadest definition, i.e. including the Middle East/Fertile Crescent)
Scene 5 with Africa
Scene 6 with South America
Scene 7, 8, 9 and 10 with Europe
Scene 2 and 3 focus on the history of domestication from prehistory to the current day.
All the other Scenes focus on mankind’s use of plants and animals.
In addition, scenes 5, 7, 8, 9 and 10 emphasize the importance of preserving nature to save and, where needed, revitalize the fauna and flora of areas devastated by mankind, since our very existence depends on them.
