Xanadu

I am working on new promo pieces that I will sending out in the next few weeks.  During my customary harddrive search for interesting images that will dazzle and amaze I found a few that I took for sculptor/artist Patrick Dougherty.
A few years ago he created this temporary structure he called Xanadu at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, IL.  The scale might be deceptive in the image, but it was as big as a two story house and made entirely of sticks and twigs.  There aren't too many times in my life that I can honestly say, "I've never seen anything like that before", but honestly... I haven't!  It was a whimsical creation right out of a fairy tale.  Unfortunately images just don't do it justice.  This is one of those thing you had to see to believe.
Mr Dougherty wanted some photos of Xanadu in the snow, so that's what brought me out here on this cold winter day.  The second photo should give you a better idea of the size of it.
