In Britain, the concept of sculpted garden ornament, was introduced with the invasion of the Romans, and again, with the influence of Italy and the renaissance period. Gardens adorned with ornate bronze, marble, lead and stone statues of Gods and Heroes, infused with symbolic meanings. This influence is still clearly evident in gardens today, and by the seventeenth century, the ornamentation of gardens in Britain with garden ornament and statuary, was creating a link, between the house and garden, and fantastic busts, urns, vases, and sculptures spread from the garden into the house. By the 1730's the demand for decorating the house and garden with, statues, urns, busts, vases, garden ornament, etc, was so great and widespread, estates were decorated with all manner of arts, sculptures and ornament. Thus! the garden ornament industry was established, and reproductions were made from classic sculptures to be more affordable for you and I.
