Scattered throughout the gardens, an extensive collection of bronze sculptures awaits you. A unique and whimsical part of this collection is giant insects! As you walk through Pua Mau Place Botanic and Sculpture Gardens, you’ll come upon a praying mantis large enough to tango with, a dragonfly sporting an intricate wing design, a scorpion boasting its sting, a spider and a centipede, thankfully inanimate. The concept behind these sculptures is that every garden is full of insects, but that a visitor is not necessarily aware of their presence because of their small size. But when the ratio is reversed, one feels gratitude that these critters are made of bronze.
