Today I bring you the unmistakable femininity of Niki de Saint Phalle’s statues from her Tarot Garden, Il giardino dei tarocchi, which I by some strange strike of luck have in my immediate vicinity. Since Sylvain said Women. Do I hear like attracts like?
The Garden is free every first Saturday in the months from November to March and I do my best to visit each time. Sometimes with an extra Devil. Whereas Ninja still has to be made into a tarot card. What can I say… it’s refreshing. I especially recommend the visit to any female who has ever struck her hip bones wishing they would just disappear, or wiggle her sedere in frustration because it ain’t going anywhere. This is our place of worship. Thank you, Niki!
More information on the statues in the captions. Here is an interesting paper on Niki and the Garden that I have just found.
