statues

The thinker is a beautiful figure by Rodin,in the right setting I think it would add to any garden.

Any parts as you put it are not relevant in  either the figure or the lions.

Personally I would pick the statue over the lions any day,after all you are not creating Trafalgar Square are you?image

    I'd get a thinker and balance him on an old lavatory pan and put the two lions in front of him watching how he's getting on.image

    It's all down to personal choice but for me, unless you have a stately home, lions and similar heraldic symbols look absolutely ridiculous.  Just round the corner from where I live is a 3 bedroom semi with lions holding shields on each gatepost.  Surely the architectural / gardening equivalent of the full chav look.

    Whatever gets you through, KT53.

    I draw the line at windchimes, the gardening equivalent of waterboarding.

  • OH wants a "nymph surprised whilst bathing"image   I said I'd put some clothes on her & definitely a scarf & woolly hat in the winter. But then we haven't got a pond so I think it's a non-starter!
