We finished the first arrows of the signpost in the sculpture garden and mounted them. As a remark from Mihaela from Lugoj, that are exactly the colors of the romanian flag. So welcome Mihaela :).

new signpost in the garden of Clara – LA SENIETA – Benicarlo – Spain

We mounted a second signpost in the garden of LA SENIETA – the bio garden refugium of Clara. The signpost will host some links to the familiafeliz destinations and Clara will add some new locations of friends working in the field of permaculture, bio gardening, medicinal plants and social cultural projects like the color garden or the artist residence CASAdelDRAGON.

We created the second step to the entrance of the sculpture garden. First we prepared the cladding, then we supported it with a ring of heavy stones. Inside we places some nice natural stones and mortar.

stairs to heaven – part 1

foundation of the first big step into the sculpture garden area

If you can dream it, you can do it (Walt Disney).

One aspect of the color garden is, to realize a premanent exhibition area for landart and sculptures and installations. To enter the garden, each visitor has to reach the different levels in the garden. We started with a first step. And we imagine, it will be the first of 1.000 steps…

outside natural stones and mortar, inside little natural stones and concrete

Rebecca asked how long it will take to create one step. We calculated 8 hours of working (moving material, mounting, the finish, mosaic on top). So we are in front of 8.000 hours ahead…
