CONSERVATORY AT THE HUNTINGTON LIBRARY

Here are some photos from the Huntington Library’s Conservatory. It’s divided into several sections, like rainforest, cloud rainforest, and bog.

this plant is just one leaf! it’s a 15-foot tall leaf that’s a compound leaf, divided into many leaflets. it’s an amorphophallus titanium, otherwise known as the stinky corpse flower.

THE CLOISTERS – ARTWORK

Here is some artwork that I saw at the Cloisters that I liked.

A base, probably for a statue, with a carving of Eve and the Serpent/Lilith at the apple tree in the Garden of Eden.

A painting of a dragon. Or more specifically, a wyvern I think.

A column base, I think, carved like a lion.

A painting/mural of a lion that I liked.

I really liked this depiction of Mary. The picture is a bit blurry but you get the idea.

A pitcher shaped like a dragon. I like dragons. There’s a small knight or person sticking out of its mouth which is funny.
