Come on a tour with me of sculptures in the Saint Louis Area
There is so much to see in Saint Louis Missouri, it is hard to know where to start. This hub is dedicated to some sculptures I have found while being out and about in the greater Saint Louis Area.
The photos are numbered and if you want to see them larger, you can usually click on the image, especially the smaller ones on the side, to get a larger view of the image.
Photo 1 - This is a large and very high sculpture that sits out in the front of the beautiful art museum in Saint Louis. It overlooks a huge park down below, with large fountains and ponds. It is laid out very well. I love the sculpture here whenever I see it and it always makes me want to learn more about Saint Louis. He is on a horse here, and holding a very long and large sword!
Photo 2 - A neat aquatic themed fountain or sculpture that is very interesting. I really love it, and it always catches my eye when I see it. Located at the Missouri Botanical Garden.
Photo 3 - A little Chinese animal or dragon statue at the Botanical Garden as well. He has personality, that is for sure!
Photo 4 - A very unique and tall sculpture or decoration. These "people" are lined up and very animated though flat and without expression. This is driving up towards the Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly house. I love the ducks that are always here, and you can see them crossing the road in this photo.
Photo 5 - Beautiful sculpture in the water garden, with an Asian theme I think. She is lovely, this sculpture. I wish I knew more about her but I do not at this time.
Photo 6 - A favorite angel sculpture and fountain, pouring out water from the containers in her hand. There is some kind of beast at her feet, and it is very beautiful and interesting. Very near the old home of Henry Shaw, founder of Missouri Botanical Garden.
Photos 7, 8 & 9 - I believe all three of these are sculptures by Carl Milles Orpheus, and I absolutely love his art. They are each a work of art, with a lot of passion. They are tall and beautiful and usually found in man made ponds when I have seen them. I would love to see more of his work in person one day if I travel to places where his work is located.
Photo 10 - This is a lovely sculpture, of a man, woman and child playing with very free spirits or so it would seem. They appear to not have a care in the world, and they dance happily among flowers in the garden.
Sculptures bring so much to our communities. After taking these kinds of photos, I am more aware of sculptures and just how many different communities have.
