Your appreciation of the Thread Garden rests on your love of irony and kitsch. If that threshold is low, you'll be disappointed. If it's decent, you may, if you're in a good mood, enjoy the 'miracle' (official description and just slight hyperbole) that is 150 species of 'plants' from around the world meticulously re-created using 'hand-wound' thread. The technique was perfected by Keralan artist Anthony Joseph and the work took 50 craftspeople 12 years to complete, which is either very impressive or kinda sad.
