Strangley enough this creepy statue which i must say i Love! is located in the very same grounds at the flowers you see below, tucked away in various parts of the gardens are some very unique statues and carvings and this has to be my favourite.

 

I really wanted to do this statue justice and rather than having a lovley floral background i done my own take on it with a mass of editing, first in Hdr due to the horriffic white skys today which over powered everything else. (this also helped bring out the details) then various layers for contrast and curves and levels then some more layering for the textures. i also added a slight sepia tone to complete it.
