This statue appropriately blends in with the rest of the garden and yet it invites your eyes to look. The ivy has found its way to become part of the lady's outfit. This combination gives a sense of connection between the accent statue and its surroundings. There exists an impression that "she" has been there when the garden began. The color and scale of the accent piece add to the overall success of this design.
I took this picture from one of the gardens featured in the El Dorado Hills Garden Tour (May 15, 2010).
