Chinese Figurines at Taliesin West

At Frank Lloyd Wright's desert camp in Scottsdale called "Taliesin West," there are these wonderful Chinese figurines built into the walls.

Frank Lloyd Wright had a shipment of Chines figurines sent to his desert camp in north Scottsdale, but many arrived damaged.

Ever the artist, Wright and his apprentices created wonderful scenes and a sense of place with these figurines integrated throughout the property.

To see more of Taliesin West, just select the Taliesin West label below.

I stayed at Wingspread a couple of years ago and he incorporated a few surprises there, too.
