I thought I had done Italy enough to feel like, in my travels, I could venture on to new destinations…wrong. I am obsessed with Il Giardino dei Tarocchi and it’s creator Niki de Saint Phalle.
Located in Tuscany, Italy, it is an overwhelming sculpture garden created by a fascinating woman. It is near impossible to not feel a little dizzy with stimulation from this garden.

I know I don’t need to, but I can’t decide which photos to share so I am going overboard. I am awe inspired. Can you imagine the time it must have taken to create this masterpiece? Ceramics in the garden gone overboard.

At the Website, you can read about the creator Niki Matthews/ Niki de Saint Phalle. She was a stunning woman, the likes of whom I admire intensely. She was clearly able and willing to create an artists life full of amazing adventures, beautiful things, and fascinating friends. I wonder if there is a biography of her, I am wanting more.
