Dwarf in Mirabell’s Zwerglgarten,  Salzburg,  June 2018

The Zwerglgarten, “Dwarf Garden”,  in Salzburg’s Mirabell Gardens was introduced by Prince Archbishop Franz Anton Harrach in the early eighteenth century. Many of these characters were modelled on dwarves who lived in the court and served as entertainers to the archbishop.

Years later, they were removed and auctioned off, but have since been rescued and cleaned.  They now stand in a circle in the gardens.

        1. That’s some drive, Marie! I don’t know much of Denmark, really only Copenhagen, which I like. Should be lovely in September.
          I might be in Spain part work, part friends in August; then photographing horses in Iceland in September, and more photography in Oman in November
