Rousseau in the Natural World

Would you believe that these photographs were taken in Las Vegas? Yes, Las Vegas. It's true. Any tourist visiting Las Vegas must see one of the most extravagant and over the top hotels that houses a constantly rotating, gorgeously designed garden. It's inside the Bellagio Hotel. I know what you're thinking. "Rousseau and Las Vegas? That's crazy!" Under normal circumstances, I would think the same thing, but, look how beautiful it is here. The garden is lush and green and tropical. It completely evokes the exoticism of Rousseau's paintings. It's easy to picture monkey's frolicking in the trees and among the flowers. It's Rousseau all the way!
