La Demeure Aux Figures
Grottoes, sculptures, and recycled ceramics permeate what was once just a small farm in France.
Roland Dutel's and his partner transformed Dutel's courtyard to a sculpture yard.
Unlike the conventional farm stocked with animals and produce this eccentric farm is intensely decorated with the original art of former carpenter-builder Roland Dutel. Intricate decorations cover nearly all blank spaces and floors hold the weight of many sculptures. Walls of mosaic are matched by molds of cement figures, ceramic pieces and man-made sculptures. Outside in the courtyard these same embellishments and more covers the property and in the basement is an intricate labyrinth is made up of grottoes.
