Private Museum Description
Niki de Saint Phalle's "The Tarot Garden" is the artist's esoteric sculpture garden based on the Tarot cards. Located in Tuscany, Italy, this project started in the late seventies and ended when Niki passed away in 2002. The outdoor exhibition space was opened to the public in 1998. It contains 22 monumental figures constructed of concrete covered with mirrors and ceramic mosaic, which represent her notions of the greater Mysteries of the tarot. Niki de Saint Phalle lived in the space for many months during its construction, giving it a deeply personal and intimate connection with the artist.
