In a remote part of  southern Colombia lies San Agustin, the hub of an ancient tribe that little is known about. This area is also a UNESCO world heritage site. because it is home to ¨the largest group of religious monuments and megalithic sculptures in South America.¨ Luckily for those traveling around Colombia, you don’t have to go to San Agustin to see the statues. Many have been taken and placed around Colombia, including the Gold Museum and at the base gondola station at Monserrate, both in Bogota. Since there are no seasons in Bogota, the flowers grow all year long. And, on one trip up to Monserrate, I was able to capture this Suh-Weet shot of the statue in the garden.
