Imagine my surprise, while visiting Hillwood Museum and Gardens, when I saw this sphinx at the entrance to the formal gardens. There are four of them. I’ve seen them before, in bronze at Blairsden–the house that is also the location for a garden I’ve designed for APLDNJ for this year’s Mansion in May.
The sphinx at Hillwood…
The slightly different but not all that much sphinx at Blairsden.
I don’t know a lot about these types of sphinxes, but the similarities are remarkable don’t you think?
