Queen Califia Magical Garden

Queen Califa Magical Circle

Yesterday I had a chance to go to Niki de Saint Phalle wonderful and magical sculpture garden in Escondido - Queen Califia Magical Circle. I have heard of her other sculpture garden in Italy and saw some of her work in the Museum of Modern Art in Nice. It is about 1 hour north of San Diego in Kit Carson Park.

From the parking lot, you walk through California scented herbs and see the garden in the distance. You enter through a maze with wonderful textured mosaics. The color, the size and the sculptures are amazing. I highly recommend visiting it. It might be hot in the summer but on a breezy spring day with the sunlight dancing around from fluffy cloud - it is wonderful.

Great exhibit, Marta. We had her work at Missouri Botanical Gardens a few years back...(btw, WHEN are you and George going to come visit me so you can see the Garden?)
My favorite was the Skull.


That is really extraordinary!

Very cool photos! Thanks so much for sharing. Wish I knew about it, I would have tagged along.
