These beautiful, ancient-looking sculptures are the work of a mother and son project known as Sacred Stone. Deborah and Casey Bridges of Studio Bridges draw their inspiration for these breathtaking sculpture fragments from the deities of the East as they have been portrayed on ancient temple carvings and sculptures. Each fragment is cast out of fiber reinforced cement that has been carefully made to look as if it is already ancient when you receive it, but will only become more stunning as years go by.
“The garden sculpture is a fragmentation of sacred imagery of various cultures – Buddhas, angels, Greek and Roman gods – and I express these archetypal symbols in a state of transition and disintegration because they represent impermanence, the passing of time, and myth-making, all pointing to the great mystery,” Deborah shares on their site.
These sculpture fragments look best when they are surrounded by plant life and at one with the elements. Their enchanting, antiquated appearance in a landscape or garden can make it looks as though they fell there hundreds of years ago, especially when they have developed a moss growth or have been blanketed in light snowfall. They are durable in all weather conditions and develop more of a beautiful patina as they age.
