In the center of the garden is an 11-foot (3.4 m) mosaic sculpture of Queen Califia in gold glass armor, standing atop a 13-foot (4.0 m) eagle and raising a bird above her head. Visitors can walk between the eagle's legs and into a domed temple adorned with celestial symbols and plaques from another sculpture garden by Saint Phalle, the Tarot Garden. In the middle of the plaza is a golden egg-shaped fountain, which represents both Califia's magical reign over the sea and the birth-death-transformation cycle that serves as a recurring theme in Saint Phalle's works. day no people sculpture garden, sculptor, mosaic, Saint Phalle, magical, Escondido, San Diego, California,
