Many people, including me, go to a Botanic Gardens to look at the plants and relax and soak up the atmosphere. Many, of course, go simply to enjoy the sun and sit outside and watch their children play or have a picnic or otherwise relax. I have to say that once I got inside the Kibble Palace the plants, though very interesting, took second place in my enjoyment score to the sculptures. I have always enjoyed sculptures and was absolutely overawed when I was in Firenze (Florence) by the statuary there. I must blog on it sometime. But I digress. In the Kibble Palace were a number of statues which really appealed to me. Eve reminded me a bit of Pania of the Reef which is a statue in Napier.
