contemplative sprite

One of the many such sculptures designed by Frank Lloyd Wright (1913) and sculpted by Alfonzo Ianelli that adorned the walls of Midway Gardens, Chicago, Illinois -- a German-styled entertainment complex with restaurants, terraces, gardens, and even a pool. This particular Sprite overlooked one of the dance floors, gazing down serenely on the partygoers as a living ornament of architecture. She's now located outside the giftshop at the Wright Home and Studio.
