This sculpture park was intended to house the works of the designer, but the setting itself became the artist's masterwork. It is possible to visit by appointment on non-open days.

I had never heard of Opus 40 until I ended up in the region, but I am so pleased that I heard about it. I have been to Great Zimbabwe, to Angkor Wat, and to Borobudur, and I think this stone sculpture garden--created over almost...More

Wasn't sure what to expect here. The grounds belong to a sculpture guy that has since passed. He created this wonderful backyard with all stone designs. They are not typical sculptures. It is more like a maze, with raised areas, circular patterns, little tunnels. It...More

Plan to spend the day here. It's is truly breathtaking. It's almost meditative. I wish I could have met the brilliant artist behind this place. I can't even fathom how he envisioned and/ or executed these phenomenal sculptures. I really can't wait to go back....More

Archeologists in the future will likely be scratching their heads over Opus 40. What was its purpose? Who built it? This makes it that much more interesting to know who made it and why. Almost maze-like, this sculpture park takes you through layer upon layer...More

Mr. Fite's vision for Opus 40 was impressive. The structures he built from the blue stone quarry are lovely and most amazingly, no cement or mortar was used. The grounds are beautiful but expected to see more statues and wish we could have seen the...More

Its a bit out of the way, but something you will not see any place else. Walls, walkways, are blue stone. Some sculpture. Small gift shop. Small museum of tools. Picnic area, porta potties (not a hit with my grandaughter.) Kids can explore but not...More
