The gardens and forested areas of Sanssouci hold a very large number of classical statues. In this set, we see a selection of these sculptures clustered at the base of the fountain and then at the start and continuation of the Main Boulevard towards the New Palace.

Great art captured by an artist. That lion's head looks almost 3D. A really nice set, Joe.
