Well Punxsutawney Phil is at it again, and this year he didn't see his shadow for once! An early spring is upon us, which is exciting news. We may want to keep our coats by the door just in case, though, because you never know!
Whether you're looking forward to sunshine and barbecues, or still enjoying the skiing and hockey season, we thought you might enjoy some plaques depicting springtime merriment and beauty.
Below is a piece we just added to our site, Awakening of Spring. A youth on the right, who we think may be the Greek god Pan, is playing two horns, ushering in the springtime. A putto (or cherub) dances on the left holding a garland. One detail we love about this piece is the pairs of butterflies at the top and bottom. Each butterfly mirrors the one next to it in profile, almost becoming a single butterfly.
