Which of these Washington sculptures will make it to your home?
The National Park Service has just released its final list of the 100 best-preserved sculptures in the country, and they’re all pretty awesome.
In the case of the “hirshorn sculpture garden” at the park’s headquarters, it’s the best-looking and best-designed of the bunch.
The landscape in the foreground is covered in trees and leaves, while the garden in the background features dozens of colorful flowering plants, some of which look more like miniature flowers than actual trees.
And then there’s this little gem: “The Land of Enchantment,” by John Lott, 1879.
The garden in front of it features a full-size reproduction of the 19th-century artist’s most famous painting, “The Fountain of Youth,” by Francis Bacon.
And the sculpture at the end is a tiny version of Lott’s “Crown of Peace,” which also features a giant sculpture of a cross, with a red, white and blue background.
The list of finalists for this year’s National Park Foundation award, which honors outstanding contributions to the arts, is here.
