I stumbled upon this place and was lucky to find out some interesting history of the artist. I hear its great at dusk because its lit and spooky. Great for the photographer in you to come out.

This little garden is tucked next to Roble Hall, a beautiful sculpture garden that fits so well among the trees. A beauty for sure.

This little sculpture garden is one of a number of hidden gems. Artisans from New Guinea visited and created these sculptures, one of which is said to look like Richard Nixon. Whether intentional or not, it does!

There are just about 10 sculptures here. Took 10min to go over them. Very special, completely different style from conventional ones like Rodin's nearby.

Around 50 sculptures and totems. An impressive collection, and it's just standing there waiting for you to explore it. Very tranquil and interesting.

The garden is hidden in a tiny forest at the corner of Lomita and Santa Teresa. You can walk right by and never notice it. Step inside and it's overwhelmingly powerful and beautiful. Play the crocodile drum. Walk through the entire forest carefully, many sculptures...More
