Two topiary sculptures stand next along the pathway, both from Chinese designs and reflecting traditional Chinese culture. Blessing Of The Good Omen Dragons is the first of the pair.
The second is Joyful Celebration Of Nine Lions, across the pathway from the above topiary.
If you look closely, you might see a man in the midst of this shot. He's one of the groundskeepers. Members of the public, obviously, are not supposed to be there. Having a person in the shot provides scale though.
For today's post, I finish with this shot looking back at where I've already been with some of the Canadian topiaries, across from this spot. The path continued on from here.
Adore ! Love Dragons and Lions. They are done so well.ReplyDelete
I do not know how they keep them looking so nice.
Thank You for the sharing.
cheers, parsnip and badger
incredible detail and true characterisations, in all it must take a lot of people to create all that, it looks labour intensive and is specialised work, very fortunate to make the display a priority.ReplyDelete
Wow ! terrific ! what an artwork !ReplyDelete
Fantástico e muito bem elaborado este trabalho.ReplyDelete
Continuação de uma boa semana amigo William.
