Stone carved dolphin head. I’ve been keeping an eye out for gargoyles and interesting statuary recently, they make quite interesting and sometimes quite scary images.
This one lives at the head of the cascade in Chatsworth House gardens. He is not actually so scary when in situ, but taken out of context can be quite threatening. I have used photoshop to bring out some of the colours and the lose the background in a dark vignette. This gives the impression that he is peeping out of a dark recess. I quite like the effect.
Lets see what the judges make of him.
