Note from the artist: 

Edward James was a wealthy English poet and surrealist art collector. In 1947 he moved to Mexico and created Las Pozas in San Luis Potosí, as his expression of surrealism. He often emphasized how Mexico is “naturally surrealistic” and how he wanted the structures he was designing to form part of that. He went to great lengths to achieve his desired surrealistic style in creating his sculptures, and at one point, he also conducted electricity from the nearby town Xilitla to light up the forest. Edward James described how wanted his structures to form part of nature and/or blend into it. He believed everything man made had to go back to nature.
