Our very good friend Walter is a sculptor. His bronze sculptures are in the lobbies of Fortune 500 companies, luxury hotels, parks, golf courses, tennis courts and many other places, including private collections in Europe, the U.S., and the Caribbean, . . . and our house!
Most of Walter 's sculptures are of birds, birds with character and humor and whimsical personalities.
This one, outside an education building at the Coastal Discovery Museum on Hilton Head Island, is irresistible to children. Just about every one that goes by sits down, puts his arm around the bird, or leans into its friendly body.
The Westin Hotel on the island has a lot of Walter's sculptures and we visited them this week.
This elegant fountain topped with three great blue herons, graceful symbols of the Lowcountry, greets visitors at the entrance.

Rhett and Scarlet from "Gone With the Wind" have a waltz
on a balcony overlooking the grand lobby.
These two vacationers hold cocktails and sunbathe in their private pool, keeping an eye on the human swimmers and loungers in the gardens of the hotel.
Behind them you can see the blue of the ocean.
I love sculpture and Walter's are very special to us.
These three birds live at our house.
