iconic bridges around the colorful koi-filled Long Life
Lake at the Japanese Garden at the Birmingham
Botanical Gardens in Birmingham, Alabama is the
subject of Miriam's painting. Miriam often painted at the
Birmingham Botanical Gardens and particularly
enjoyed the Japanese Garden.
Officially opened in 1967 by the Japanese Ambassador
to the United States just 22 years after the end of
World War II, the Japanese Garden and the bridges are
a symbol of peace between two countries once at war.
This work is available for purchase and would make an
exceptional gift. This is one of the most iconic pieces in
Miriam's available collection of works and was part of
a solo show at Aldridge Gardens in 2019. Please
