Queen Califia’s Magical Circle


This impressive sculpture garden is the last major international work by the French artist Niki de Saint Phalle and consists of a maze entryway and nine large-scale sculptures enclosed within a circular “snake wall”.  The garden is located within Kit Carson Park in Escondido and is generally open one Saturday per month from 9 AM-noon.  A recent article in the New Yorker recounted her life and showcased her Tarot Garden in Tuscany.
