I wonder if you have come across the work of American artist, Nick Cave?

I saw his work  a while back when it was exhibited as 'Until' at the  Carriageworks Gallery in Sydney.  Your piece reminds me of  one of the most spectacular works there:  I thought you may be interested, so searched to find images of it:

'At the centre of this all is a huge hanging crystal cloud, topped with a beautiful "private garden" You can climb one of four ladders for a peek into this secret world, complete with its own crocodile, golden gilded pigs and blackface lawn jockeys.'

'If those jockeys seem like an unusual addition, there’s a strong political slant to all of the work by Cave, who has a history of reclaiming racist paraphernalia as a black artist. The title “Until” refers to the frequently used phrase“innocent until proven guilty" but the installation addresses gun violence and race relations in America, paying gentle tribute to some of the black men in America shot by police in recent years.'  ~Timeout.
I've never seen so many objects, everything imaginable, placed so beautifully together, so overall it still kind of looked like a magical garden.

Pleasure. Wish I'd photographed it. Was enough to climb the steps and be on the edge of paraphernalia heaven. Glad you liked it.

I love the work. It is somehow a perfect adaptation to "the garden of earthly delights" by the dark age painter hyronimous bosh. An Interpretation transformed to contemporary symbolism and media. Congratulations for this Great achievement and artwork.
