Phoenix Renga Installation (in dedication of Daisy, queen of the desert)

Daisy, queen of the desert is up for a ride, if not daytime guarding the installation below.
At night she prefers to stay in, because of the insatiable desert owl.

jtwine's transformation of Fung Lin Hall's Renga (japanese collaborative poetry, or bricks) installation on the edge of South Mountain Park in Phoenix. While working with those bricks I felt like being guided by some native american desert spirits. Must be, the next morning we did check out the petroglyphs nearby, revealing similar design patterns.

Hohokam petroglyphs at south mountain park (the largest urban park in the US).

More on the history of the Hohokam.
