  1. I’m glad I saw this statue after it had aged and developed some patina and character. I don’t think I would have appreciated it when it was brand new.

    1. I understand what you mean. She is well placed a clearing on a hillside overlooking the main garden before you come to more of a wooded area. I had to write ‘clearing’ three times – the spell check kept correcting it to ‘e-learning’, which seemed very out of place, but so very WordPress!

  2. Fascinating. One usually sees statues like this clad in garlands and flowing togas. The waistcoat and hat were very unexpected(by me anyway).

    1. She has something of modernity and something of timelessness. Oddment mentioned that she might be a shepherdess – you could easily imagine Marlowe or Shakespeare writing about her.
