Statuary 

We have decided to put all of our statuary stock under one heading so it now includes everything from modest, weathered, composition stone figurines up to rare, life-size antique statuary. It also includes everything from stone lions to classical busts, woodland spirits to angelic putti. The guiding principle is that in each case there is something about the statue that we really like.
