  Shell House Talks - Gallery - Royal Fort Gardens - Clifton - Bristol  
     
 

Originally designed by Humphrey Repton, 1800, this is now a Public Park with 2 sculptures that reinvent our views on the garden maze and grotto.
"The Hollow" (2016), is by Katie Paterson. A modernist grotto constructed from 10,000 tree samples from across the world.
The apertures allow unusual light patterns to fall onto the wooden shards. The floor has fossils dating back over 390 million years.
