The half-horned or half-hornless woodland spirit

Let me introduce you to one of the Terms in the gardens of Kew Palace. There are five marble statues of woodland spirits lined up close to the River Thames, watching over the Palace. The group is believed to have been acquired by Frederick, Prince of Wales in the 1730s, making it some of the oldest statuary in Kew Gardens.

Now over to all of you. Do come and join us in our Saturday six-word musings.

I’ll admit that many of us openly break the numeric rule and share far more words (all excellent of course!) so the key rule is to have a title of six words – and then create around that the post that you desire! Perhaps in bunches of 6 words if you’re feeling inspired.

To join the challenge, please put a link in your post to the URL of this post. Then come back here and leave us a comment. If you have any problems with linking, just put your own URL into the comment. And do feel free to socialise digitally – tweet, instagram, flickr, etc. with the hashtags #SixWordSaturday and #6WS.

  1. I didn’t know the provenance of these statutes so another bit of history to write on to the hard-disk of my brain! It’s nearly full up or that’s my excuse anyway for forgetting so much these days.

  2. This reminds me of visits to the Cleveland Museum of Art when the girls were little. When we looked at the Greek and Roman statues, they wanted to know why the statues didn’t have heads (or arms or whatever.) 🙂 Here’s my offering from our trip to San Diego last weekend. It was so tasty!
