Work is due to take place today to repair one of Somerset's most popular landmarks.
The 40-foot high Willow Man went up beside the M5 in 2000, though it had to be rebuilt after a fire the following year.
The artist, Serena de la Hey, will begin mending the statue's leg this morning and will inspect the structure with a view to further repairs next year.
Today will see the final stages of repairs to Somerset's Willow Man costing £18,000. The 12 metre high sculpture by he M5 near Bridgwater had begun to come apart around the head and arms.
The Willow Man in Somerset will be given an eighteen thousand pound facelift this week.
The 12-metre high sculpture next to the M5 near Bridgwater will undergo repairs to its head and arms. Artist Serena de la Hey will go 40 feet up in a cherry picker to reweave the statue using local willow.
