Corrigan extended lawns to blur sharp boundaries, added statuary for interest, and introduced venues for plein air entertaining: "If you devise destinations, you'll actually use outdoor space instead of just looking at it." Since preservation guidelines kept him from installing a new pool, Corrigan created one from a fountain in need of repair, deepening and widening its footprint. In the formal garden, hedges define "rooms," some with architectural features such as fountains.
Yep, that's a pig playing the bagpipes. This unusual stone carving is found at Melrose Abbey, Scotland. This medieval foundation is meant to be where Robert Bruce's heart is buried.

Whinnying Horse Tang Dynasty (618-907) Height 19 inches (48.5 cm) Earthenware with pigments. Whinnying horses are amongst the rarest models to be found in the Tang potters atelier. Standing four square, wearing an elaborately draped saddle, the horse raises its head and opens its mouth to reveal a set of prominent teeth. The eyes are ablaze and the neck strains forward all adding to the dramatic pose. #Tang #China #Chinese

Expansion by Paige Bradley [New York, USA] - 25 Of The Most Creative Sculptures And Statues From Around The World
Paige Bradley's statue "Expansion". A woman seeking inner peace but fractured and bleeding with light. “From the moment we are born, the world tends to have a container already built for us to fit inside: a social security number, a gender, a race, a profession,” says Bradley. “I ponder if we are more defined by the container we are in than what we are inside. Would we recognize ourselves if we could expand beyond our bodies?”
New York Habitat: This sculpture is called "Expansion" and was made by the artist Paige Bradley. Here's an article that explains the story behind the sculpture: http://www.mymodernmet.com/profiles/blogs/riveting-story-behind-that ... It doesn't say where this picture was taken (our guess is at the Brooklyn Bridge Park -you can see the Brooklyn Bridge in the background-) but apparently the sculpture was put up for auction and is not there anymore.

Night Flight by Michael Parks Art
Night Flight - 2009 Michael Parkes The subject is a part of a fairy tale that Michael used to tell his daughter about the world of 'the swan kingdom'. 'In pursuit of the Unknowable, the swan princess is encouraged by the swans to fly. Until ultimately, like Castaneda's leaping from the cliff, she will learn to shift from matter into spirit and back again as we all must do eventually. '

The broken chain is a common religious headstone symbol from the late 19th century. It symbolizes Christ's hand reaching from heaven and breaking the chains of death. It's meant to serve as a reminder to the living that death is only a temporary state for the faithful. Leona Mary White (3 June 1872-18 March 1950), Florence City Cemetery, Florence, Alabama.
