Nek Chand

National Geographic http://www.rawvision.com/nekchand/nekchand.html One day over 40 years ago, Nek Chand, a humble transport official in the north Indian city of Chandigarh, began to clear a little patch of jungle to make himself a small garden area. He set stones around the little clearing and before long had sculpted a few figures recycled from materials he found at hand. Gradually Nek Chand's creation developed and grew; before long it covered several acres and comprised of hundreds of sculptures set in a series of interlinking courtyards. http://www.rawvision.com/nekchand/images/chand1.jpg http://www.drpoef.com/subhash/trip/update/chand2.jpg http://www.drpoef.com/subhash/trip/update/chand2.jpg
