Bella Donna

Of French origin, “Belladonna” has been fashioned in an Art Nouveau style. Art Nouveau, is a phrase used to describe a European art movement of the last two decades of the 1800s and the first decade of the 1900s. The term Art Nouveau is derived from Maison de l’Art Nouveau, a Paris shop opened in 1896 by the dealer Siegfried Bing. It found expression in a wide range of art forms—architecture, interior design, furniture, posters, glass, pottery, textiles, and book illustration—and was characterized by its devotion to curving and undulating lines, often referred to as whiplash lines. “Belladonna” is sure to delight any home or garden.

Hearken back a golden age when young ladies of noble stock were introduced to society at formal gatherings where social etiquette and ballroom dance was in order. Originating in France in the 18th century, the cotillion was a lively dance, having varied intricate patterns and steps. The word is derived from the French word for petticoat and has come to represent a formal ball, especially one where young women are presented to society.

Egyptian Girl

Following the discovery of King Tutankhamun’s tomb by Howard Carter in 1922, the western world was obsessed with anything Egyptian. The treasure recovered was of such great quality and design, that dress, jewelry, architecture and many other mediums were influenced with ancient Egyptian motifs such as the scarab beetle or lotus flower. The “Art Deco” movement (commencing in the mid 1920’s), has many of it’s roots firmly planted in the art of ancient Egypt. In this piece we clearly see Egypt’s influence in the small table that the girl is leaning upon. She is also dressed in ‘roaring 20’s’ revealing fashion.

St. Francis of Assisi

No garden is complete without a statue of St Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment, to watch over the natural cycle of flora and fauna. St Francis was born in medieval Italy and renounced his father’s wealth in order to live a humble religious life. He was revered for his great humility towards the living world and is often pictured with a small bird in hand, a reference to an incident where he and his companions came upon a place where birds filled the trees. St Francis preached to the birds who surrounded him, drawn by the power of his voice, not one of them flew away.

The Family

Family is important to us each in a somewhat different way. But what child does not long for the warm, loving environment of a parent’s nurturing arms at some point in their lives? Later, when the child leaves the home, he or she recalls this feeling and this strengthens the bonds between parent and child, no matter what the distance of their separation.
