Today Marla, the girls, my dad, and I went to Kit Carson Park in Escondido to enjoy some local artwork. Kit Carson Park is the largest regional park in the city of San Diego (300 acres). It is home to the only American sculpture garden created by the internationally renowned artist Niki de Saint Phalle.
There are eight large totemic figures symbolizing various monsters, skulls, humans, and animals with various special powers.
The circular wall that surrounds the garden is decorated with beautifully colored mosaic serpents.
Be careful when touching them however, they get HOT!
Yelling Man Totem.
The main attraction in the sculpture garden is Queen Califia. The 11 feet tall sculpture, with a golden egg inside, represents birth, death, and transformation.
The mosaics are absolutely memorizing.
