This whimsical garden gallery is filled with the most delightful sculptures that make you chuckle and wonder. The artist has a wonderful sense of humour, which is evident in his life-sized sculptures scattered through a magic garden, complete with babbling streams and rain forest foliage. The cost of $20 for a family was well worth the entry fee, and we also came away with a DVD to capture the majority of the work on display. The garden is only open at weekends, but, much to our distress, the works are not for sale.
Bruno, unhappy at having to sell his works, started the gardens about 10 years ago so that he could create but not have to part with his fabulous work, from quirky men on flying machines to fairies and elf-like characters to an old man in an ancient wheelchair--some of the models have been decorated with collectibles, such as the Beethoven caricature playing an old typewriter rather than a piano, or the recycled forks, shower heads, and old carpentry instruments, like planes, etc. There are pieces that are hybrids, like the cartoon character growing out of a grasshopper's body. Enjoy a leisurely hour or two. It's good for all ages
