Selby Gardens is famous for its plants and trees, but nestled among them are many unique and fascinating sculptures. From the somber Thinker, made from Italian marble and resting in the shade of a banyan tree, to the fierce Javanese flying lion, carved from lava stone and crouching behind the bamboo near the koi pond, these beautiful sculptures can be found all around the Gardens. Kids in particular love the Santa Claus face carved in Indonesian lava stone and the colorful animals in the Children’s Rainforest Garden.
While these sculptures add beauty and another dimension to the grounds, they also highlight the many gracious donations that make Selby Gardens such a wonderful place.
Selby Gardens is featured weekly on ABC7 News at Noon. Tune in Thursdays to see more informative segments like this one.
