Obviously they were brought in from some other location, I would imagine from some place within Thailand, but who knows? I have not been able to find anything online yet that tells where the stones come from or the method of their artful placement. Whoever did it though, they definitely knew what they were doing. The place is essentially a rock garden put together on a super grand scale.
As I write this I'm also going through and editing the scores of photos and video I took of that incredible place. When I say incredible I mean unbelievable. In photo after photo I keep seeing some new aspect of oddly shaped placement of rock and stone juxtaposed among some of the most inventively shaped trees and shrubs imaginable. Many of the shots remind me of artwork seen on the pages of Doctor Zeuss books.
But there is more, much more—crocodiles, elephants, tigers, giant catfish, and many other exotic animals native to the tropics. There are also some amazing specimens of shrubs, bonzais, trees and a host of flowering plants, all beautifully placed among the rocks and water. It is a veritable Asian Garden of Eden.
More on the non-garden stuff located in The Stone Garden in my next post or two, or three… Enjoy the pics. I highly suggest you click on them to get the full effect.
