figure from 'Reverie in a 17th-Century Garden'

Paris, France: Reverie in a 17th-Century Garden

Along with the fanciful female figure in this photograph, there was also a similarly fanciful male figure. This entry tied with Shanghai, China, for the Grand Prize for three-dimensional entries. (Although it was sufficiently strange for me to want a photo, I certainly did not think this was prize material.)

Giants Dozing

Easter Island, Chile: Giants Dozing on the Side of the Volcano

There were several other of these well-known figures in this entry.

Magic Alembic

Chaniers, France: the Magic Alembic

This two-dimensional entry clearly shows why mosaic appears in Mosaïculture.


Shanghai, China:
Upper-left: How the Cobras Protected Buddha
Lower-right: The Legend of the Multicolored Stones Multicolored Stones

The Legend of the Multicolored Stones tied with Paris, France, for the Grand Prize in the three-dimensional category. Notice the workers busily tending this entry. Throughout the Exhibition, we saw workers trimming shoots, replacing dead plants, watering, etc. The Exhibition started 20 June and ended 15 October, almost four months. For such a long-running show, grooming and tending was expected. (Don't I make a great Buddha in the upper photo?)
