Villa Isola Yard Ornaments: Marble Greek Statue
Villa Isola (see my previous posts here and here) has two gardens: North and south.
The north garden is of European style marked by, among others, a swan pond, a rectangular fountain pond, flower gardens, and a path that devides the garden into two symmetrical parts. This photograph of Greek style marble statue is located in the middle of the rectangular fountain pond.
In contrast to the building (read: Villa Isola), which is well-maintained and kept to its original condition, the garden is now in less-than-perfect condition, the rectangular fountain pond is dry, and the arms of this Greek marble statue - as you can see in the photo - are broken. I don't know why nobody has attempted to restore this statue and pond. Regardless of its current condition, I think one can still see the traces of how beautiful this statue must have been once.
This post is my participation in this week's yard ornament theme of Photo Scavenger Hunters.
