One is left of the entrance at Bechtel International Center. A group is at the east entrance to Wilbur Hall, off the parking lot, and a somewhat prostrate pair is at Wilbur Hall’s main entrance off Escondido Road. Bonsai trees are in the round planters in front of the Law School entrance off Canfield Court.
