A must see in Stanford. Not a big place but so amazing. Really nice sculptures. You can spend there taking pictures even an hour

A stunning hidden treasure on the Stanford campus. An enterprising anthropology graduate student brought craftsmen and artists from New Guinea to Stanford some years ago to carve a fascinating series of sculptures, totem poles, drums, etc. What looks at first glance like an ordinary wooded grove soon reveals fascinating and intriguing figures in both natural wood and painted wood, and also some in stone. After the New Guinea artists were taken to see Rodin's "Thinker," they created the New Guinea Thinker in this garden. Also--be on the lookout for the stone sculpture of someone who's a dead ringer for Richard Nixon. Kids love this place - adults, too. Another plus: it's free.

I stumbled upon this place and was lucky to find out some interesting history of the artist. I hear its great at dusk because its lit and spooky. Great for the photographer in you to come out.

This little garden is tucked next to Roble Hall, a beautiful sculpture garden that fits so well among the trees. A beauty for sure.

I appreciate the collection of artifacts and sculpture from across polynesia and the Pacific Rim, however, the garden in which these sculptures have been placed appears to be overgrown and lacks intention. Arrive late in the day and the deep and dark shadows cast by overgrown trees makes this a spooky setting.
