Arty Tuesday: New Orleans Botanical Gardens – Undine by Huth

Secretly I have always wanted to ride this fish, but the pond prevents that sort of activity. I haven’t been able to find much on the artist except that the sculpture is called Undine and it was completed in 1942 by Rose Marie Huth. If anyone knows more of her history I would love to hear it.

I was lucky enough to spend some time in the Botanical Gardens at City Park on Earth Day when the gardens are usually closed. I snapped a bunch of photos of the statues for my May theme.
