I already wrote about how I’m going to miss the walls here, but I am specifically going to miss this one on Orizaba. It is the outer wall of a property that, when we peek through the gaps in the gates, seems to be just as quirky as the wall would lead you to expect, with partly-finished buildings, one of which appears to be a chapel. The whole kit and kaboodle is for sale. You get the feeling that if you called the US number that’s painted on the “for sale” sign, you might reach Simon Rodia.
I’ve gone by this wall many times, and, like any interesting sculpture, it always shows me something I didn’t see before.
