What is it about human nature
and the unique? Average American landscape statuary? TIRESOME.

A story of 4 seasons shared

in coiffeurs of stone.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
Pics taken last week at Le Jardin Blanc. Statues, cast stone reproductions, are for sale. Didn't ask the price nor know from whence their story arrives. What century? What country? Whose idea? Was she a real person?

Well Alfi,

If I just had the Money. LOL

This intrigues I'm curious about the story behind these lovely 4. As a child, pieces like this fascinated me.

We had a home next door with acres of gardens. They had many paths tucked about and stone statues around every bend. After school I would walk those paths and day dream...your photos bring back those cherished childhood memories.

Very beautiful- I have a head of Apollo in my garden that I love!

I love statuary in grand gardens. In European grand gardens one expects grand gestures; in American modest gardens, one expects small hints of the garden's past.

I've enjoyed your lessons on creating focus points.

I have two of these (did not know there were four). I dubbed them Demeter (with the wheat) and Persephone (with the grapes) and they guard the entrance to my little prairie temple. They were magnificent in the snow we got this winter.
