Located over 2700 miles off the coast of Chile, the isolated Easter Island boasts the world’s largest collection of megaliths. These giant statues range in height from 10 – 33 feet and were constructed over 18 centuries ago. All of the statues face westward and their significance is still a subject of debate. Some say they represent lost kings, and that one was constructed for every king. Others say they are to scare away invaders. The real mystery is how they were transported to where they now stand. Weighing as much as 27 metric tons (50,000lbs), the mystery is as great as the construction of the pyramids.

Akhenaten was an ancient Egyptian pharaoh who ruled 3500 years ago. He was responsible for major changes in Egyptian culture, art and religion and is credited with the first attempt at monotheism, or worship of a single god.
Akhenaten and his family are usually presented in a more naturalistic manner than any of his predecessors. It is speculated that his strange, elongated features are either representative of his religious beliefs or the result of a physical abnormality. His mummy has never been found, but a reconstruction of his sarcophagus guards the entrance to the Cairo Museum.
Akhenaten had a large family. One of is wives was the infamous Queen Nefertiti and it is accepted by many that he was the father of the boy pharaoh Tutankhamun.

In Alobar, Travis Bond has beautifully captured the restless energy that characterizes Gothicism in sculpture. The Gothic character embodies nervousness, ever-active energy and a lack of peace that precludes relaxation and lapse into partial awareness. In his alarm, Alobar appears powerfully present and starkly alive – a dynamic pose of potential activity compressed into stillness. Perhaps he has suddenly become aware of how dark the night has grown, or he has been alerted to an unknown presence in the gathering darkness.

In this series of benches, birdbaths, fountains, planters, pedestals and lamp, seasoned designer & sculptor Klaus Kinast has attempted to capture the design essence of the American Colonial period. This term generally refers to that period of U.S. history from the time of European settlement (the late 16th c.) up to independence in 1776, with particular emphasis on the Thirteen Colonies of Britain. The design of this period was predominately that of the European states from where the settlers came from, but was influenced by the simpler lives that these people lived. Gone was the heavy emphasis on ostentatious decoration, instead being replaced by a simpler, less cluttered and easier style. Great use was made of local woods in furniture design and quilting and fabric became important decoration. Motifs were generally simple in the form of natural flowers & fruit. As the style developed, higher grade furniture was introduced along with decorative accessories and fabrics.

This original birdbath, designed by master sculptor Klaus Kinast, was inspired by imagery from the influential Art Deco design style.
This style first emerged in France in the 1920s and was the predominant design trend during the interwar years. This was a period of rapid industrialization and development in machinery. Gone were the organic flowing lines and images based on nature found in the preceding Art Nouveau period and now popular were sharp geometric, symmetrical lines and motifs. The Art Deco influence can be seen in decorative objects, automobiles and fashion but perhaps most dramatically in architecture; think of the unique spires found on the Chrysler Building in New York City.

On a pilgrimage to Paris, Benedict fell in love with a young woman. Whilst very beautiful on the outside, she was cold and cruel on the inside. She quickly grew bored with Benedict’s attentions and devised a scheme to rid herself of him. One day she demanded that he perform three tasks to prove his love for her: If successful, she would agree to be married. First, she wanted him to fly her up to the castle tower. Benedict went to the sorcerer and asked for a potion to make him grow wings and then, as requested, flew her to the top of the tower. The young woman admired the gargoyles surrounding the tower and wished that Benedict would look as handsome as they. Again, blinded by his love, Benedict took a potion and was transformed into a horned gargoyle. For his final task, she demanded that he sit not eating, sleeping or speaking until her return and then they would be wed. The wicked woman never returned and after many long years, Benedict turned to stone. Today he watches over the young lovers of Paris whilst awaiting the return of his love.
