Telling a story visually

Every single element and feature of the Hazelnut Inn will faithfully tell a delightful story. Rather than words, visual details describe this tale.  According to legend, our intrepid explorer has gathered architectural artifacts from around the world and built her estate around them. Unfortunately, her journeys leave little time for mundane tasks such as maintaining the grounds. Accordingly, they have fallen into some disrepair. Guests will have the opportunity to explore the lush garden, filled with exotic plants half hiding many of the artifacts.

One of the features on display in the explorer's garden is a giant obelisk. It was acquired far away in the middle east and transported here. When they reassembled it it seems things didn't line up quite right. Not quite enough effort was put into the foundation. Necessary repairs were makeshift, a large steel bracket was anchored into the precious stone artifact. Still leaning badly, the tall stone obelisk succumbed to gravity and tumbled over where it still lays to this day. The steel bracket is twisted and broken, the anchors pulled roughly from the upper stone. The rust marks from the iron bracket remain as well. 

All these details are carefully crafted into the feature, on purpose, by bending and welding steel and hand carving the concrete as it set. The rust and weathering is actually skillfully applied paint. And the tumbled stones will in fact be carefully placed to appear as if they fell haphazardly into the garden. The top portions of the obelisk will act as a bench for those who care to sit and take it all in.
