A prehistoric scene with eerie, misty fountain and tree fern.
The theme was Passport Around the World. The hot air balloon is made of individual flowers!
This display in the hut below is part of exhibit with the parrots from my last post.
The view inside the hut. This part of the exhibit was called "mining" - appropriate if you notice the (faux) diamonds in the center of the photo.
Part of the same exhibit. Made of leaves, flowers, seedpods, seeds... This was one of several unique masks.
You may not make it out clearly, but look for the walrus/fisherman is towards the right of the photo.
I really liked this exhibit. This is enclosed in glass with prose. Inside, (see photo below) is an interpretation of the American flag. The legs of the table are interpretations of Americana.
