Naturally, Artificially, Mystically...

Quotes from The Garden of Cyrus are taken out of context in order to sound more odd, profound and often poetic. These phrases have been turned into plaques, similar to the modern Health and Safety Signs, but in non standard colours and placed on the walls of buildings in Kings Street.
