More Sculptures

Regular readers of this blog will know that I do like the slightly unusual when it comes to sculptures...
The other day Anne and I visited Hampton Court Castle and in the wonderful gardens they had some very interesting sculptures dotted around....

Now this is not the Hampton Court that is situated close London....that is a Palace and is about one hundred years younger than the Hampton Court Castle that we visited which is set in the lovely Herefordshire countryside...

Like the Palace gardens near London this Hampton Court also has a maze...this one is made up of a thousand yews and has a gothic tower at it's centre.
From the top of the tower you have wonderful views over the gardens...you can then descend beneath the tower to a secret tunnel that leads out to a sunken garden from behind a waterfall.

The gardens of the castle are lovely and I might share some images of the very colourful flowers and other plants in another post.... until than I have shared a few of the scultures we saw in the gardens below.....

Great sculptures. Objects like these always seem to bring an odd sense of life and living to an inanimate object. As though the place is populated by real entities with real character.

They really are lifelike aren't they David...I thought that they were worthy of a post so I am glad that you liked them...

Very interesting, Nice to see some sculpures like this rather than modern art style circle on top of circle on top of square rubbish like most sculpture parks.
