Sally and Jim Gibbs have 11 grandchildren and over the years have collected sculptures to represent each grandchild and their personalities.
Placed between the Waterlily and Japanese Gardens the sculptures creative placement in a natural environment exude the love of family, art and landscape.
Many of the sculptures are near water, casting reflections. A stream and several waterfalls fill this valley with sound. Children are at play in this peaceful area. Two grandchildren watch as another is releasing a goose. One grandchild is sitting on a bench reading a book. Another is on a tree limb playing the flute. Two grandsons are netting a fish while another is sitting on a log fishing. Two cousins, a boy and girl, are riding the back of a sea turtle.
One grandchild didn’t quite agree with the sculptor’s choice of hairstyle. A fact still making her grandfather smile.
