sign about the artist of this sculpture

A massive sculpture made from thousands of woven saplings is located at Wegerzyn Gardens Metro Park in Dayton Ohio. It’s called “A Wiggle in Its Walk,” and visitors will find themselves both wiggling and walking as they make their way around and inside the giant creation. Dougherty says his serpentine structure, originally designed to slither in amongst the bushes and trees, was inspired by Ohio's serpent mounds. Dougherty said the sculpture turned out a little less snakelike and a little more maze-like. The installation is one of 225 that the artist has created at botanical gardens and museums throughout the United States and around the world.

Dougherty says this is his largest sculpture; about 14 feet high and 200 feet long. It is fashioned of three-and-a-half semi loads of black willows harvested over a two-week period from Englewood’s North Park. Dougherty had volunteers that helped to bundle and carry willow branches and pounding willow uprights into the ground, then weaving and bending the willows.

As the two RV Gypsies wound their way through the twig maze, Karen Duquette was surprised to see a big tree in the middle of the twig maze.

The two RV Gypsies each went a separate way as they walked through the twig maze and they tried to sneak up on each other.
