Late afternoon at Olbrich Gardens

"Fiddleheads" at Olbrich
I've always loved the serene simplicity of this sculpture at Olbrich Botanical Gardens. There's a wonderfully expressive tension between the the sheer mass of the stone and the delicacy of the ferns that it portrays. The sculpture is called "Fiddleheads," and it's by Sylvia U. Beckman.
