Sculpture, Middleton Place Plantation and Gardens, Charleston, SC

A tranquil atmosphere in the gardens at Middleton Place surrounds this wood nymph sculpture from the early 1800's.
If you follow this link to Middleton's website, you can see another one of my images of this statue.


  1. Taken straight from a Mid Summer Nights Dream Doug.

  2. I find it surprising that someone sculpted a detailed statue out of wood.

  3. I wouldn't have guessed in a thousand years that it was wood if you hadn't written it, Doug...

  4. lovely and nicely detailed ... i can't believe it's MADE of wood, though ... i guess it's a wood nymph as opposed to, say, a water nymph ... ;-)
    gorgeous dof and bokeh, btw !!!

  5. Sorry for the confusion... this statue is a wood nymph made of stone.

  6. it's beautiful how the light illuminates it..
