Quite a few of us bring art into our homes. Paintings, tapestries, sculpture and uniquely-crafted furniture bring art to our homelives. Sometimes we bring art into the garden. Unique garden ornaments come together with nature’s green to bring interest to private outdoor areas.
Sometimes outdoor sculpture graces commercial areas, but with the exception of the occasional gnome or gargoyle, it’s less-often found on public view in residential areas.
The sculpture in front of a home on 2nd Street in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood may be the exception. It blends in so well it looks to be part of the living green, rather than an object of art–especially now that the trees are bare. I’m not sure who created it, or the idea behind it, but I did find it to be a tasteful whimsical addition to the landscape.
