From the Lost Gardens of Heligan in England, a resting place for sleeping stone giants (with excellent grass afros.)

2. Stairway to Heaven


“And she’s buying a stairway to heaven…”

So maybe it isn’t quite all the way up to heaven, but this dramatic, fantasy-inspired tower seems to suggest it’s headed that way.
