Victoria has graced the Santa Fe Botanical Garden with her painted totemic Spirit Poles that speak with a primal power emerging from the cold, clear New Mexico winter landscape. One hundred and fifty Spirit Poles are set into position in the Ojos y Manos: Eyes and Hands Garden and lit with laser lights in to enliven the spirit of this holiday. Her installation is a garden of colorful plantings that illuminate the winter garden with a rainbow of bright beings. Victoria calls this her version of Zero-Scaping … Plants that can grow in any environment and never need water to stay perpetually in bloom!
