Beautiful woodcarvings at Lalbagh Botanical Garden

I went to visit Lalbagh on 3rd March, and was pleasantly surprised, at the area where the majestic Ficus benjamina trees are (leading from Kempe Gowda’s tower to the Glass Hoouse) being used to set up some beautiful wood carvings, done on solid tree trunks. This seems to me to be a beautiful way of making a dead tree come alive again. Here are some of the carvings.

The work is only one month old

The installation is still under way.

Less appealing was the fact that the title of at least one work and the name of the artist were negligently thrown on the ground in a laminated sheet, as you can see.

I did not click some of the more abstract ones, but strongly recommend a visit to the garden to see this new artwork!
