Art rock: if only stones could speak...
A thoroughly modern curiousity in the rather surprising Jardins Suspendus de Marqueyssac in Dordorgne, from a grouping of heads carved in stone.

If nothing else, don't miss a virtual visit of this enchanting suspended garden with its 150,000 meticulously clipped boxwoods, 6 km of winding shaded footpaths and one of the most spectacular views of the Dordogne River Valley, 130 meters below. Click here.
Most of the boxwoods, sculpted in complex topiary patterns, were planted in the second half of the 19th century in sinuous, romantic period outlines. ©Jardins Suspendus de Marqueyssac
A fine view of the Dordorgne River and the village of La Roque-Gageac from a belvedere.
