Niki de Saint Phalle, The Empress, 1998

Friday fabulosity, as embodied by this brightly coloured, big busted figure by the French-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle, which can be found nestled in the hills of Tuscany. There, 22 large-scale representations of characters from the traditional deck of tarot cards occupy a fourteen-acre outdoor space known as the Tarot Garden, completed by the artist in 1998. Find out more about this secret hub of “monsters and goddesses… [where] mirrors and ceramic tiles create a profusion of colour and light” in Louise Benson’s 2018 feature on the subject for Elephant.
