LOS POZAS








I stumbled upon a book on Los Pozas at the L.A. Public Library. Things like this make me love the library, and the eccentric art patrons of the world. Edward James was a british aristocrat turned surrealist eccentric. His portrait was painted by Magrite, and he collected and befriended artists like Man Ray, Ernst, and Dali. His greatest accomplishment was Los Pozas, an outdoor surrealist sculpture park in the tropical rainforest of Mexico. The park consists of 80 acres of concrete psychedelic structures that weave in and out of waterfalls, orchids, and overgrown jungle landscapes. James had 40 dogs, and over 1000 exotic birds that roamed freely in what he likes to call his garden of Eden. Currently the park is being restored. So beautiful and magical- this would be the ultimate Vena Cava nature site.
