In 1547, Prince Vicino Orsini commissioned work to begin on a park filled with twenty four natural bedrock-sculpted art pieces. Inspired by Prince Orsini’s artistic vision, I have attempted here to present a modern adaptation of a dreamland journey through the course of his insanity after his wife’s death. The distorted pieces contained within this series are composited versions of many of the original twenty four Ligorio works.
