Inspired by Antoni Gaudi's Parc Guell in Barcelona and the Mannerist park Sacro Bosco in Bomarzo, Niki de Saint Phalle, together with her partner Jean Tinguely, created her sculpture park in Garavicchio, in the south- ern-most part of Tuscany. In this vast garden, the 22 cards of the tarot's Major Arcana are represented in the form of enormous sculptures, 12 to 15 meters high, made of painted polyester and reinforced concrete, cov- ered with mirrors, mosacis, multicolored ceramics and Murano glass. This enchanted world was, for her, the ultimate achievement of her oeuvre, its culmination. Including texts written by Saint Phalle herself and ex- plaining her thoughts and intentions in creating the sculptures, this book is a concise introduction to the garden. Moreover, it is a piece of art in its design, in- spired and created by Saint Phalle herself.
