by Chris Lucas

Quintessential Leon Watson Adobe home on a lush, tree-lined Old Town lane. Built of earth & timber, the classic Spanish Pueblo Revival home--at 711 16th St NW--has all the Watson artistry: thick-cut viga beams supporting T&G wood ceilings, dramatic lintel beams, Kiva fireplaces, stained concrete & tile floors, organically-formed windows & portals flowing between living areas & remarkable punched tin kitchen cabinets. Unique touches like stained glass nicho & an adobe-carved serpent motif in each bedroom. Includes two skylights for optimum light, & generous-sized kitchen & dining room to stretch out. High-walled front & back private courtyards encircle the lush, fully-landscaped property with distinct custom steel entry gates. Near Explora, ABQ Museum & Tiguex Park, with four Little Free Libraries within a four block walk.

Now walk around the garden & notice the sculptures from different angles--it's a whole new experience with each new gaze at the figures. Below are numerous views of The Head, easy to access & prominently displayed in the garden. Read More

by Chris Lucas

I love the ABQ Museum Sculpture Garden's Big Head, that rests prominently in front of the museum's main entrance. You can't miss the massive bald head, with it's attached-lobe ears, pointy chin & sporting a concerned look under furrowed brows. With the Explora Museum nearby & across from the 8+ acre Tiguex Park, the sculpture garden helps create a great greenspace corridor in that part of Old Town. The sculptures make you want to linger there longer.
