October 2015 - Palm Springs CA
Click here for more photos from our visit to the garden.
This sculpture garden is tucked away behind the palm trees that line highway 111 beside the Art Museum.
The 250,000 square feet of sculpted, rolling landscape is covered with native plantings, winding pathways, and water features.
I thought I recognized this young lady!! I believe we had seen it in Sante Fe NM years ago.
The title is Walks Among The Stars by Dave Mc Gary. It is the second bronze in the Native American Women series. It depicts a late 18th century Lakota woman displaying her beautiful heirloom star quilt. As the Indian Wars ended and the North Plains tribes faced relocation to reservations, the Sioux women began making patchwork, quilts as replacements for traditional buffalo robes. Today, the star quilt is a symbol of prestige, sentiment, belonging and status within the contemporary Lakota culture.
And I had posted it back in 2013.
