At Marysville in Victoria, Australia there is a beautiful garden filled with the most amazing sculptures. Bruno Torfs has created a magical haven in the country town of Marysville with his incredible, imaginative sculptures dotted throughout a bush garden.
Unfortunately February 2009 saw Marysville decimated by bushfires, with the loss of 173 lives and over 400,000 ha burnt.
Bruno lost some of his sculptures, the garden and many of his paintings. This photo was taken in November of 2009 and the regrowth of the forest can be seen behind the sculpture. The garden was being replanted and the remaining sculptures were put back in place.
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Bruno Torf’s Art and Sculpture Garden and highly recommend a visit there if you’re in the Yarra Ranges area.
