{On a plaque attached to the front of the plinth:}

The bust was commissioned from Calcutta, "a spiritual home for Keib". His bust in the Islamic garden depicts a great listener & story-teller, with his signature ‘beatnik’ look. Note that the statue base consists of a pile of books.

Site: Keib Thomas bust (1 memorial)

SE5, Burgess Park, Chumleigh World Garden

These gardens are rather hidden and finding them was like discovering a little maze of secret gardens. We've since learnt that this is the Chumleigh World Garden, with plants and landscaping designed to reflect the diversity of the surrounding population of this highly cosmopolitan portion of London.
