The {Lost} Garden Of Sundarya Lahari is a stunning new installation at LEA 13, one of their new round of art intsllations. I read about it on Quan Lavender’s blog, and went to see if it was really as spectacular as her images suggested.

It is.

Created by the artist Xineohp Guisse, there is a story behind it (and a book to collect too, filled with gorgeous images):

According to myths, the Ancients discovered a botanical species; a kind of reed that was capable of resonating a sound frequency when touched. The Ancients harvested these reeds and created a meditative and spiritual garden.

Quite by accident, the Ancients also discovered a symbiotic creature to the reeds; which they named the Pentapuss. The Pentapuss has the same form and biological structure as the reeds, and fed off the soundwaves made by the reeds. In doing so, their movements amongst the reeds nurtured the growth of the reeds to maturity.

The Ancients built BioPods and BioSpheres; to nurture these reeds and the young, juvenile pentapussies. They built contemplative Elemental pods at the Chamber of the Ancients, to observe these creatures and plants. They built a music chamber, where they can physically interact with the reeds……

In time, the garden grew to become a beautiful space – to contemplate and be as one with the beings that surrounds them.

Do go and visit but – in the meantime – here is a jigsaw.
