Antwerp Garden Art



A quick weekend trip to Belgium took us to Antwerp, Diest, and Tongeren. In Antwerp we came across a small garden ("Kruidtuin" or herb garden). Dating from the early 1800s, it is an interesting little oasis and it was nice to see some of the early spring plants blooming. It's not a dainty recreation of an 1800's garden, as this modern sculpture shows.

I love this sculpture. The photo moves me deeply. Alas, I will probably never have a chance to see it in person. I am very interested in knowing if I could obtain a copy of the photograph or if anyone knows of any other prints of this sculpture.
