Peek-a-boo was not your normal dragon. He always knew he didn’t really want to be a dragon, but he didn’t know what kind of other creature he wanted to be. As he grew older he became more awkward and shy. Here he is hiding under his wing after discovering he can make fire and flame. Of course, being Peek-a-boo he burned himself and now the poor little fellow may never come out from his place of refuge.

There is something about frogs that appeals to people. Children are fascinated by them and will spend hours trying to at first locate and then capture them. As adults, many of us never lose the enjoyment of seeing a frog up close. We do, however, lose the desire to search ponds and other froggy type dwellings.
Master sculptor Klaus Kinast has created Peter & Barry for you to enjoy frogs in your garden, without having to trouble yourself with searching through such places.

Jordan Van Sewell’s work deals with the juxtaposition of animals that have entered the human condition. His creatures become spokespersons for the events that surround us. It is through this change of circumstances that we get a deeper insight into where we, as the human race, are headed.

One upon a time, after the fall of Rome in a far away land, there lived three gargoyles: Giddian, Cadred & Ramsis. Now you know that at night when we are asleep, gargoyles come to life. One of the favorite pastimes of Giddian, Cadred & Ramsis was to mock their friends the three monkeys; See No Evil, Hear No Evil & Speak No Evil. Little did Giddian know that half a world away; his namesake had put pen to paper to write the bible. At that very instant all three gargoyles were frozen forever in their mocking poses. Together, the three gargoyles protect the harmony of your garden.

Rapa Nui or Easter Island Megalith
Located over 3500 km (2700 miles) off the coast of Chile, Easter Island boasts the world’s largest collection of megaliths. These giant statues range in height from 3 to 10m (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. They were carved from volcanic rock from Rano Raraku. 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.

Written some time before the 10th century, a manuscript tells the epic tale of Beowulf, an ancient warrior king. One of the king’s servants had chanced upon a dragon’s lair laden with treasure. In an attempt to please his master, the servant stole a golden goblet. Enraged, the dragon took his terrible vengeance on the villages in the kingdom. Beowulf trekked to the lair and fought the dragon in a horrible deathly duel that the king lost. Wiglaf slew the dragon and assumed the throne. Perhaps Serendor was that dragon.

SIR DUGLESS OF CANALOT – KNIGHT OF THE GROUND TABLE
Out of the grass castle, the Knights of the Ground Table emerge to do battle with their toughest foe: the gardening chore. Unflinching are they as they traipse through the labyrinths of the tangled garden in their noble quest to rid the land of those pesky weeds. Armed with various gardening implements: a watering can and hose for protection, a spade and trowel for battle, Sir Dugless is ready for action. Unfortunately the noble lord is suffering from a life lived full; his taste for the finest foods, ales and wines has left him not as agile as he once was. His watering can squeaks a little, his shield made from hose is a bit limp and he doesn’t slip into his chain-link like he used to!

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 noble art of Sumo Wrestling, Japan’s national sport is steeped in tradition that stretches back thousands of years. It is thought to have first developed from rituals and ceremonies of the Japanese religion of Shinto as far back as the Tumulus period (250 -552). Later it was recognised as required military training.Today Sumo has developed into an exclusive sport, demonstrated in six Grand Sumo tournaments (Basho) held during the year by 72 salaried professionals, with hundreds of amateurs trying to breakthrough the ranks. The rules of Sumo are relatively simple: two large men trying to force each other out of a small circular area, encouraged by adoring fans. Beware the unwanted visitor that dares to enter the garden that this Sumo Wrestler protects!

The Giant Swimming Koi is manufactured using our ‘lay-up’ technique, which allows us to produce a large impressive garden piece that is not unmanageable in mass. Can be left outside year-round. Koi are members of the carp family of fish. Carp have long been kept and bred as pets in many civilizations. The ancient Romans kept them in ponds and fountains and bred the ancestors of today’s common Goldfish. In China, they are recognized as good luck symbols. The colorful Koi carp available today are the result of a strain first bred 160 years ago in Japan from a naturally occurring mutation. The word Koi actually translates to “carp” in Japanese.

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.
