Hello all,

I am going through old photos and came across this. I took it in the gardens of Rudyard Kipling's home in Kent. I would LOVE to have something like this in my garden. If anyone could help, I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

All the very best to you all,
Benny

Still hunting and still coming up empty. I found links for Batemans but they are not showing details or giving the names of the artists who supplied the garden art. They probably want us to pay for a tour of the gardens. Rolling on the floor laughing Is this the correct house? http://thesouthofengland.blogs...

Suggestion: If you have an college or university nearby (or one not so nearby, for instance, Savannah College of Art and Design Whistling ) you might try commissioning a young artist to do an interpretation of the piece. Each year I try to buy one piece of original artwork done by a senior student who shows promise. Encouraging someone's dream for success is money well spent.

eek! I don't know where you'll find a garden sculpture like that but it reminded me of where I worked years ago ... the VP in the mortgage office had a huge stuffed, coiled rattlesnake sitting on the floor next to his desk; a snake that had been killed during building construction!

A trifle dear, tho.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
