Papier-Mache and Water

The actual waterfall itself looks like stone, but it's really — believe it or not — like papier-mache where the workers bent and re-barred steel, put chicken wire over the top of it and coated it with a layer of cement. The last process was to paint it, using some natural colors to make it look like stone. Once the water is added, along with some plants, the effect is an extremely natural looking waterfall. The pump for the water is hidden underneath, which is another great feature.
