Dionicio Rodriguez ((1891-1955) is a Mexican born artist who is known for his concrete sculptures which simulate the appearance of wood known as Faux Bois. The gate appears to be in the form of a Pagoda constructed of tree trunks. The fence appears to be constructed of tree branches and vines. The shelter appears be constructed from a hollow tree. All are constructed of concrete sculpted to the natural appearances. These works were constructed circa 1943.
